Ag2r’s special summer kit

Ag2r-La Mondiale’s kit gets plenty of criticism, the brown shorts are not exactly a favourite. But I’ve seen a few riders for real, as opposed to photos, and the jersey looks fine.

One thing that will be different for July is that the clothing will feature a special carbon fibre “spine” for the jersey. The point here is to help with ventilation, to ensure the jersey is held clear of the skin and so allow a small amount of air to go inside. Clothing sponsor Vermarc Sport also claims it will reduce “electric interference with the internal organs“… say that again with a straight face.
