Jumbo-Visma recently announced the jersey in which they will run the Tour de France – the yellow on the team is too similar to the yellow in the Tour. The Dutch Masters jerseys attracted a lot of attention.
With the new Giro shirts from EF Education-EasyPost, Alpecin-Fenix and Intermarché-Wanty-Gobèrt, it may not be that bad, the design taken into account, but they also make a big round in a different design for different reasons.
As with Jumbo-Visma in the Tour, with EF Education, given the pink colors of the normal shirt, it is necessary to run in a different outfit. With the team of Jonathan Vaughters, they like to make a virtue out of that need because they have already ridden in a spectacular duck shirt.
This time it’s a little less spectacular, but clothing sponsor Rapha has once again put together a beautiful alternative outfit. For the next three weeks, do not look for the EF Education-Easypost riders in pink, but in black with lots of color accents.

Alpecin-Fenix usually runs in blue and could therefore have competed in it in the Giro, but the UCI allows teams to wear another jersey once a year – we saw Mathieu van der Poel and his companions in the last Tour year in the beautiful purple-yellow shirt as a tribute to Grandpa Poulidor.
This time the reason is a bit more business-like: the Italian co-sponsor Fenix has a new product (the X-KIN wall covering), and to put it in the spotlight we see Mathieu van der Poel in green (but hopefully also in pink ..) this Giro. Even more specific: Verde Comodoro, because that’s what the color of the shirt is officially called in Italian.
Intermarché-Wanty-Gobèrt also runs in a slightly different shirt than usual, although the change is minimal. Biniam Girmay’s team is also making the change to honor an Italian sponsor.
Vini Farnese is the co-sponsor of the team and will be more prominent this Giro on the blue ribbon in the middle of the jersey with their Vini Zabù brand.
let’s give this @giroditalia debutant something love

From tomorrow we will see the jerseys in the race when the Giro starts in Budapest. You follow the whole stage from kl. 12.30 on Eurosport 1. The finish line will be between kl. 17.00 and 17.30 in Visegrad, where there is a finish line that has to go uphill the last five kilometers and that Mathieu van der Poel and Biniam Girmay should in principle be located – although Van der Poel after reconnaissance said that he thinks It’s going to be hard to get rid of Caleb Ewan.
