As Cyclingnews resident fashion correspondent, there are two events early on in the calendar that are cause for excitement. First up is the release of the new team kits, which I ranked with the help of my mother, because why not? The second is the inevitable EF Education-Easypost switch-out kit for the Giro d'Italia. Given the men's and women's teams both race in pink it would be somewhat confusing as the leader's jersey for the race is also pink, so each year the teams rock up in something bewildering. It's a time cycling fashionistas dream about: Any dream will do?

In the past, we've had the infamous, insane Palace collaboration, complete with duck-themed TT helmets, and some more subdued, kaleidoscopic prints. This year we're being treated to a kit from the scraps bin; it seems the cost of living crisis is hitting everyone.
