FDJ’s traditional kit colour since its inception in 1997 has been white, with a mix of blue, grey and more white here and there. But after riding last year in their distinctive all blue, it seems slightly disappointing to lose it all together.
The new jersey is über French, combining the colours of the Tricolore with the sponsor’s usual big four-leaf clover logo.
The team will don the new kit for the first time at a winter training camp in Spain between December 10-17, as they build towards the start of the WorldTour season in January.
And that’s not the only news coming out of the French team either, as its very slightly changed their name for the coming season.
No longer will it be the ‘FDJ.fr Cycling Team’ that you knew so well last year, as it returns to the classic name ‘FDJ Cycling Team’. Safe to say, using FDJ will probably suffice.
