Our Chute Doc: More Kit and Pre Season Silliness

Let the Chute Doc heal your wounds with a light hearted look at the world of cycling. A play on the word "chute", French for fall or crash, used a lot in cycling, and also an anagram of Tour de Couch. (This section was formerly known as That's So Couch.)

This week gave us more kit releases. Here's a few of the guys from Giant-Shimano showing off their new gear and also the guys from IAM Cycling  although at one point they were captured without the full kit

(don't show the boys from Total Rush management that one)

Trek's kit was revealed at its team presentation in Roubaix.
They literally were - Andy was being built while on stage - note in the pic above his height and nationality had not yet been decided. And here's Andy and Frank halfway through  building Fabian Cancellara.

The cycling twitterati aren't too keen on all the black in the men's pro peloton this year not because it doesn't look smart etc, but because we all know Phil Liggett now just won't even bother trying to get the names right......

We also saw Tom Boonen in a team issue grey tracksuit
Omega Pharma Quickstep will be rockin' 2014 80s Goldie Hawn Wildcats style. 

The Giro jerseys were also released. Giro kit launch organisers were so embarassed by their washed out design, they hid them

Simba was presented to the pride lands

Astana rounds off the kit and pre season silliness.
They could be channeling this poor guy. A five week erection is worthy of those puns.

I leave you with something to cross off your bucket list, and that is hearing Bjarne Riis sing. No, not to a doping authority but at his wedding. Here it is.

In case you missed them:
Actual IAM kit here and Giant-Shimano kit here
Giro 2014 jerseys here
