Think this might be the worst thing I’ve ever seen.

or, the best?

I see where you’re coming from but… no.

I did like Fuglsang looking like a genuine thug getting pushed around in a wheelchair though.

anything happen in the yawn down under?

AG2R have the nicest bike in the pro peloton

Viviani wins the opening stage. Paddy Bevin finishes 3rd and gets a 5 sec bonus. Could be the deciding factor. 5 editions of the race from 2011 have been won by 2 secs or less. Always a close race. Bonus seconds count.

Good innit.

the rest are pretty horrible, except bora-hansgrohe’s

the cannondale for EF is really horrible, which is sad

#10

Can’t decide if EF or Team Sunweb’s is the worse. The Cannondale frame and paint job is grim, that Cervelo is disgusting

#11

Quite like the paint job, but those Cannondale aero frames are :nauseated_face:

#12

it’s the lettering as well, the kerning looks all weird for some reason?

just really bad

#13

Yeah.

I like the Giant that CCC are riding but those wheels are tragic.

Jumbo’s Bianchi is still the winner for me.

#14

Won today’s stage didn’t he. Massive crash in the final kilometers

Also, that CCC kit is tasty

#15

took me ages to work out that CCC was BMC didn’t it

#16

If BMC had still sponsored the team, they should’ve been BMCCCC

The DD BMC is nice looking.
