Düsseldorf (GER) – Trek-Segafredo lined up in a new, specially designed team kit at the Tour de France team presentation Thursday. The nine-man squad will race the three-week Grand Tour in a white pinstriped jersey and black pinstriped bib-shorts, developed by the team's apparel partner Sportful.
To complement the one-of-a-kind design, the riders will don red Bontrager helmets and shoes and ride custom Trek bikes, white with a touch of red.
“The Tour de France is a mythical race, it’s one of the biggest spectacles in sport, so I love the idea of riding a different kit, specially designed only for these three weeks," said Alberto Contador of the new look. "From the very minute you put this kit on, you can just feel it's special and the magic begins.
“Personally, I think that the white kit and bike with the red accents on the shoes, helmets, and details on the bike look very classy. It’s clearly different from our usual red kit and bike with white accents, but we keep the same line and stick to our style. I like that.”
The special Tour de France kit will be available to the general public July 1st. Check with your local Trek retailer or at www.Trekbikes.com (USA/UK only).
