Omega Pharma – Quick-Step have unveiled their new-look jersey for the 2013 season, complete with a logo on the chest symbolising their TTT World Championship victory. Team rider and current French Road Racing Champion Sylvain Chavanel describes it as a combination of ‘aggressive’ and ‘classy’, whilst teammate Tony Martin added, ‘In this jersey it’s the details that make the difference. The personalisation with our Twitter account on the back of the jersey is a great idea, as is the personalised label on the back of the collar. When it comes to design and material, our partner Vermarc has really done a great job!’
As nice at it is, one person that won’t be wearing it quite as early as had been anticipated is Mark Cavendish who has opted out of season-opener at the Tour Down Under in favour of making his team debut in February at the Tour of Qatar; arguably a solid choice as he managed double-stage victories at this year’s event.
