Trek-Segafredo reveal new white kit, and Twitter has spotted just a few similarities with Sky

It's OK though, they'll be wearing different coloured helmets

If you're a fan of white kits, then you're in for a treat at this year's Tour de France after Trek-Segafredo joined Team Sky and Katusha-Alpecin in revealing a special edition jersey.

While Katusha have just given their usual red kit some white shoulders, but Sky and Trek seem to have employed the same designer, both going for white jerseys and black shorts.

Thankfully for the TV commentators trying to pick out riders from helicopter shots, Sky's jersey has a blue line down the back, and the British team will be wearing black helmets, while Trek will be wearing red helmets.

However there were of course plenty of people on Twitter keen to comment on the clash of kit.

Unsurprisingly there was less fuss about the new LottoNL-Jumbo kit, which was very 2014 with it's mainly black design.

The good news is that the commentators will have a chance to get warmed up with the opening time trial in Düsseldorf, before a real test with a likely bunch sprint into Liège on stage two.

The only saving grace is that Cavendish, Kittel and Greipel didn't win their respective national championships, meaning a couple fewer white-clad riders at the front of the bunch come Sunday.
