Spanish WorldTour team Movistar have revealed their new-look kit, produced by La Passione.

The colour scheme has reverted to the dark blue of a few years ago, but the large M on the front is light blue, as opposed to reverting to the green of yesteryear. A smattering of light blue lines and touches of black for good measure add to this classy, in our opinion, design.

The jersey was modelled by Annemiek van Vleuten, Alejandro Valverde, Sara Martín, Matteo Jorgensen, Enric Mas, Emma Norsgaard, Puerto Rican champion Abner Gonzalez and new Brazilian signing Vinícius Rangel in a video uploaded by the team to their social media channels before posting pictures of the riders in the smart kit.

The new look comes from the production lines of Italian kit brand, La Passione, which replaces Alé as the team's new clothing brand. This comes after just over a year with Alé, who took the place of Scottish brand Enduram, who ended deal with Movistar as they said there was a "developmental dead end being enforced by the UCI."

This is supposedly the last time we will see Valverde in a new jersey for a burgeoning season. The 41-year-old has said that the 2022 season will be his final summer as a professional cyclist, during which he is set to take on the challenge of both the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España.

The Spanish Grand Tour likely being his big send off means that a homage dedicated to him is rumoured to be part of the route for 2022, which is set to be released on Thursday, December 16.

In the women's team, Van Vleuten will likely be looking at the returning women's Tour de France which comes shortly after the Giro Donne, making the double a very feasible feat. 

The Movistar eTeam will also be wearing their new kit as they compete in the Zwift Racing League.

They are not the first WorldTour team to reveal their new kit for 2022 with Ineos Grenadiers kicking off the new kit season followed by Ag2r-Citroën then Trek-Segafredo and Team DSM.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
