Two items caught my eye watching De Ronde yesterday.
The first was the bright yellow helmet emblazoned with the Lion of Flanders that the Russian team Katusha was curiously sporting. Turns out, the helmet manufacturer Lazer, was using this race as an opportunity to promote a new product. The guys at Bikerumor.com were on top of the story.
The second was a post on cyclingnews.com stating Footon Servetto was wearing inverted black kit, instead of the predominantly gold version they debuted in January and have been wearing all season. Fear not, however, as the backs of the Footon jerseys have always been black, a sort of Toronto Raptors effect, if you will.
