2015 Pearl Izumi Tour Series jerseys revealed

Here's what to look out for during this year's premier domestic racing series

The Pearl Izumi Tour Series recommences on 14 May on the Isle of Wight and ahead of that date, the leaders jerseys have been revealed for 2015.

For its seventh year, there's a new red and white Pearl Izumijersey for the fastest team, which will be awarded after the opening time trial in Ryde.

In another change for 2015, a blue and white points jersey replaces the old sprints jersey. In addition to points earned during three mid-race sprints, competitors in the 2015 Tour Series will be seeking to add to their tallies at the finish, where the first five riders across the line will be awarded points towards the Chain Reaction Cycles Points Jersey.

Keep an eye out for the designs throughout the ITV4 broadcasts, where nine teams will go head to head – including defending champions JLT Condor presented by Mavic. Team Wiggins will also be making its Tour Series début along with the team of England cricketer Matt Prior, One Pro Cycling.

The women's Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series, a five-venue series beginning 19 May, will feature a similar red and white jersey to the men's team leaders. The women's sprint leader will wear green and white as in 2014.

The jerseys themselves use Pearl Izumi's PRO-level fabrics including Aerocool on the sleeves and shoulder panels and mesh across the body to help keep riders cool as the racing heats up.
