Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix champion Degenkolb is the most amusing of the three, particularly when he sports his cap in a backwards fashion as a homage to time trial riders of the recent past.

Mezgec shows the potential problems of having the peak down and Barguil has different techniques depending on which helmet he’s wearing.

The team had a mixed season in 2015, but on the whole their results point to a successful year. Degenkolb’s Monument wins were highlights but his lack of Grand Tour stage victories will have not been part of the plan.

Barguil showed his potential at the Tour de France, despite an incident with Geraint Thomas, and Tom Dumoulin gave a stand-out performance at the Vuelta a España.

With Marcel Kittel’s move to Etixx – Quick-Step, the team’s focus will likely shift for 2016.
