The team kit, the bike colors, along wiht the Zipp wheels are really sharp looking. There's not mistaking them when they take the front. The even distribution of red, white, and black is cool. I'm not one for riding in team kits but I'd wear that one in a heart beat.

Agreed sharp looking team!
I read that Riis insisted on the Zipp wheels even at the expense of paying for their own Shimano groups.
It seems Shimano will not give the groups if you dont run their wheels.

Are you sure? that just sounds odd cause of how many teams have dura ace instead of record. I dont know, you're probably right, its just that I've never heard of anything like this.
Its true. nmMajor Kong

It is true but..in the end who has paid?
Shimano because they now cannot run any nice full page ad's that show Tyler winning LBL with Shimano ;-)
Also I dont think I see any Shimano on the jerseys or shorts right?
well, you can't go wrong with red, black, and white.(nm)rufus

is it just me or does the CSC jersey have stomach muscles painted on it?
You notice the abs...I see a bib...biknben

Yeah those are abdominal muscles on the stomach area.

Looking at that picture I notice the white area extending down from the collar outlined in black. It looks like a child's bib. Are they really hungry for a win?

I have a one year old. What can I say?

Maybe their mechs will know how to do a wheel change this yearspookyload

Everyone remember JaJa throwing his bike because the mechanic couldn't change the wheel fast enough in the prolouge last year?

Ja Ja may have contributed just a bit to the prob... if I remember correctly, he tried to expedite things by attempting to remove the wheel himself before support arrived (and things went south from there)... and he thought he had them fancy quick releases figured out...

After this much time, I'm sure the CSC boys (both riders and mechs) know the drill... now the problem might surface again with neutral support (albeit, not likely over the venues that the P3s will be used)!!!

There was a story in VeloNews that the mechanics on the road didn't know that the P3 had rear facing dropouts.. they kept trying to pull the wheel down & it wouldn't move :)
