New kit will keep riders cool during July

Cervelo TestTeam Tour de France JerseyLast year's Tour de France saw Cervélo TestTeam change their look replacing their black kit with white.  For the 2010 edition the TestTeam will again be sporting a new jersey for the Grande Boucle, but this time they will be adding a touch of gray into the mix.

"The new kit will make its debut at the team presentation for the Tour de France on Thursday, July 1st," said Joop Alberda, Cervélo TestTeam General Manager.  "This is the second time we have introduced new clothing at the Tour de France, because we consider the Tour de France a very special event that deserves a special design. After the Tour de France, the TestTeam will revert to its standard uniform.”

Last year Cervélo TestTeam managed to secure two stage wins, one each for Heinrich Haussler and Thor Hushovd, with the latter also taking home the green jersey.  Both riders will return this year, and will hope to have 2008 Tour de France winner Carlos Sastre along in good health.  The Spaniard is hoping his ruptured disk will heal in time to make the start in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Their clothing manufacturer Castelli has said the lighter colors on the special TestTeam jersey will help to keep the riders cool during the Tour de France.   The limited edition Cervélo TestTeam Tour de France kit will be available for sale in early July.
