THE 2011 SEASON PREVIEW (part 1)
Co-hosted by Lucho of Cycling Inquisition Blog


AG2R LA MONDIALE (ALM) - FRA

AG2R will, once again be sporting the hideous brown/light blue combo. They will also, once again be doomed to a year of mid-peloton obscurity and useless breaks, only to be broken once in a while by Nicolas Roche.



BMC RACING TEAM (BMC) - USA

His first year as a pro with BMC should be cake for Phinney. You know, since no one is really expecting much from him. (meant to be read with oozing sarcasm)



EUSKALTEL-EUSKADI (EUS) - ESP

Catlike helmets were obviously not meant to protect noggins in a team that suffers SO many crashes. Enter the new (and ugly) Orbea helmets.



HTC-HIGHROAD (THR) - USA

The new HTC jersey, featuring See-Thru technologie from Moa. Can't wait to see the women's team.

Brand new "Friend of the Show," Gatis Smukulis



KATUSHA TEAM (KAT) - RUS
The new Focus bikes for the 2011 Katusha team. Unfortunately, in order to receive one, each team member must surrender their family to the Russian mob and/or government.


LAMPRE - FARNESE (LAM) - ITA

After years of dicking around in smaller team, Scarponi finally arrives in a "real" team. Let's hope he's not too old... and that he doesnt step on Cunego's already battered ego.



LIQUIGAS-CANNONDALE (LIQ) - ITA

Basso and Liquigas are set for another season of making other teams look like chumps in the Grand Tours.



TEAM LEOPARD-TREK (LUX) - LUX

Wait, is this a new Rapha jersey for the 2011 spring? Oh, no, wait it's another cycling team with elegance and the understanding that HUGE logos and 25 colors don't make a kit look better. My only issue? the teal looks like it's been washed a few too many times.



MOVISTAR TEAM (MOV) - ESP

2011 may be the best year for kits in a long time. Leopard, Sky and Movistar all have nice, elegant simple well designed unis. It's gonna be a shame that Soler won't wear this nice jersey during the Tour, since he'll be wearing a polka-dot one.



OMEGA PHARMA-LOTTO (OLO) - BEL

In anticipation of a shitty season, Omega Pharma Lotto riders have been asked to wear black diapers.
