Patrick Lefevre's Omega Pharma Quick Step team was the first to officially reveal its 2012 strip at the squad's official launch in Antwerp today.
The Belgian team has had limited success over the last two seasons, but with a rejuvenated budget, thanks to drug company Omega Pharma, and lots of new signings, they should fare better in 2012. Is this pale blue kit going to help them deliver?
One thing we all look forward to each winter is the new kit designs. Having been dark blue for many seasons, Lefevre's squad has opted for a pale blue next year, mimicking Leopard Trek's 2011 design (the shorts are almost identical).
There's still a little room on the front for QuickStep's corporate colour, while 'Pharma' is a slightly different shade of blue.
