Is BMC Cool Again?
As 2014 gets into gear BMC seems poised to regain the title of coolest team. But what really makes a team cool? Kits and Sponsors: Sure red and black is always cool and the whole Swiss watch connection naturally lends itself to the sport of racing. National Champs: Gotta do those jersey's well. Check the team pic above, looking good. But we all know it's the riders that make the team. Evans, Thor and Gilbert look to make a resurgence. A cool team needs solid veterans but more importantly young guys who can shake things up. Van Avermaet is a strong man to be reckoned with. Phinney is starting to win things and with his haircut and Twitter account he should keep the fans busy all year. But the biggest change this year is the all out support for TVG. Yeah, he gives a horrible interview but if he becomes the second American to win the Tour we won't care. Oh yeah, did I mention they added a bad ass Colombian and Sammy Sanchez? Cool again? You tell me.
