Omega Pharma-QuickStep have released the first images of their full squad in the 2014 kit, including new signings Rigoberto Urán and Mark Renshaw.

Urán, who finished second at last year's Giro d'Italia, was one of the Belgian outfit's major signings over the winter. The Colombian joined from team Sky to boost the squad's chances in the general classification, while Renshaw was drafted in to sure up Mark Cavendish's sprint train. Renshaw will be reunited with Cavendish for the first time since the HTC-HighRoad team folded at the end of 2011.

Other new signings include, Jan Bakelandts and Thomas de Gendt. The two Belgians were taken on at the last minute after both struggled to find new contracts. De Gendt had to take a serious pay decrease to ensure his position in the team. Julian Alaphilippe and Petr Vakoc have also been welcomed into the fold as neo-pros.

The national champions' jerseys of Cavendish and Michal Kwiatowski have stayed much the same, as has Tony Martin's world time trial champion's kit.
