Alberto Contador, Peter Sagan and Rafal Majka took to the stage at the packed Courchevel ice rink during the bib draw of the Audi Fis Ski World Cup – Ladies Alpine competition to present the highly-anticipated race kit for the 2016 season.
Contador, Sagan and Majka rode their bikes on the ice rink, in front of thousands of ski fans, to the central stage where they addressed the crowds and unveiled the team’s 2016 race kits.
The three riders were joined on the stage by team owner Oleg Tinkov, Managing Director Stefano Feltrin, Head Directeur Sportif Steven de Jongh and Technical Coordinator Ivan Basso.
The race kit Tinkoff riders will don in 2016 incorporates the state-of-the-art BodyFit technology by Sportful and doesn’t break with the recent past, following instead an evolution of its yellow and blue colors, with minor design tweaks.
The team’s signature fluo yellow takes a more prominent position on the jersey as does the name of the 2016 naming sponsor, Tinkoff Bank. The Tinkoff crest now takes centre stage, at the front and back of the jersey. The most marked colour change takes place on the shorts where grey-blue becomes predominant and yellow is present in the form of a stripe at the bottom of the thigh.
Peter Sagan, unveiled his eagerly-anticipated World Champion kit, wearing the white rainbow jersey and black shorts with the rainbow bands at the bottom of the thigh.
The new jersey will make its debut in mid January, when Tinkoff’s riders take on Tour Down Under and Tour de San Luis
