Neon yellow distinguishes team from maillot jaune

The Tinkoff-Saxo team unveiled a new look just two days ahead of the Tour de France, swapping the more muted yellow with a fluorescent shade that will distinguish themselves from the maillot jaune of the race leader.

After arriving in Leeds in the private jet of team owner Oleg Tinkov, overall contender Alberto Contador and his fellow Tour de France teammates were joined by the Russian oligarch on their training ride.

The team's official press conference takes place this afternoon.

Contador is one of the race favourites, along with defending champion Chris Froome. In stage races this season, Contador has not finished lower than second place - winning Tirreno-Adriatico and the Vuelta a País Vasco.
