An Alberto Contador fan page has posted a sneak peek at the Spaniard's new Trek Emonda via Twitter today. Contador gave the world another glimpse of the bike in his indoor training video earlier this month.
Trek-Segafredo is one of the last WorldTour teams to unveil its new jersey design, waiting until January 13 to roll out the new look. But judging from the team's photo of its socks, it is safe to bet the jersey will be black and red.
