Tinkoff-Saxo reveals new training colours

Alberto Contador has revealed the new Tinkoff-Saxo training kit, with the Russian squad opting for a complex black and white, patterned kit.

Team owner Oleg Tinkov posed with his riders in the new kit. The jersey includes a yellow 'La Datcha' logo across the chest, which is the name of property belonging to Tinkov which will be rentable towards the end of 2016.

The team is expected to again use bright yellow racing colours in 2016 but clothing sponsor Sportful also creates training clothing with input from the team. The team will be officially known as Tinkoff in 2016, they are currently in Gran Canaria for a training camp.

Last year the team often trained in a green camouflaged kit. Colours and logo sizes on racing kits are controlled by UCI rules but training kits can be of any colour and design. Even world champion Peter Sagan opted to swap his world champion's rainbow stripes to train in the new colours.  

The Tinkoff team will unveil its 2016 race kit on Saturday December 19 in the ski resort of Courcheval during the bib draw of the Audi Fis Ski World Cup - Ladies Alpine competition.
