Yesterday we announced that BikeExchange has stepped up their commitment and have become the naming sponsor of the newly titled ‘Orica-BikeExchange’ pro cycling team. These are the first images released of the new kit that they will wear at the Tour de France.
Except for the front BikeExchange logo, the kit is not that different from what we’ve briefly seen this season a few times. Because of UCI rules, the kit design can only change once per season and this modified design was what was possible in the short amount of time given for approvals from sponsors and the UCI. Not to mention how something like a major colour change in the middle of a season would affect everything from helmets to bikes. That said, look out for a fresh take on the kit in 2017.
