OMEGA PHARMA - QUICK-STEP CYCLING TEAM (OPQ) - BEL
Overall: 6 / Improvement: Slight / Got rid of the hideous half-tone gradient.



ORICA GreenEDGE (OGE) - AUS
Overall: 5.5 / Improvement: Same shit, different year



TEAM GIANT SHIMANO - NED
Overall: 4 / Improvement: YES! Hideous, generic jersey, but NO more white shorts!



TEAM EUROPCAR (EUC) - FRA 

Overall: 5 / Improvement: Whatever / No comment. WTF.




TEAM KATUSHA (KAT) - RUS

Pro Continental Teams


IAM CYCLING - SWI
Overall: 8 / Improvement: Yes / Easily my favorite new kit. The Swiss flag detail on the chest is very elegant. Love it.



 YELLOW FLUO (YEL) - ITA 
Overall: 1 / Improvement: NO!! / Fuck this.
TEAM NETAPP - ENDURA (TNE) - GER
Overall: 6.5 / Improvement: Obviously not / No, it's not a joke.



ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI (AND) - ITA

Overall: 4 / Improvement: Nope / Barforama.



BRETAGNE - SECHE ENVIRONNEMENT (BSE) - FRA

RUSVELO (RVL) - RUS
