Ahead of the start of the 2019 edition of the Tour Down Under EF Education First Pro Cycling and Rapha unveiled their 2019 kit — and the final WorldTour team to do so. The pink and blue fade design is Rapha's first return to the top level of the sport since ending their partnership with Team Sky back in 2016.
Alongside the new kit, EF Pro Cycling also unveiled their 2019 Cannondale race bikes, which have also been given the wavy pink and blue fade treatment.

A print of the design has been wrapped around the top tube and down tube of the bike then clear lacquered, alongside retro, contrasting white Cannondale decals.
The black undercoat on the frameset is complimented with deep carbon Vision Metron wheels, black FSA finishing kit, a black Prologo Nack saddle, Cannondale SISL cranks and FSA 54/38 chainrings.
Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series components provides Docker with shifting and braking. Tacx bottle cages hold the eye-catching bidons in the same pink and blue fade design as the team's new kit.
