Video: Sky and Leopard Trek in training – spot the difference!

Shimano launch YouTube channel

Several pro teams have similar looking kits this year, including Leopard Trek and Sky

Shimano have launched a new YouTube channel called Race TV that features their sponsored riders. There’s all kinds of stuff on there, from interviews to behind-the-scenes footage from team training camps.


Browsing through the footage we couldn’t help noticing that, with their black, blue and white jerseys, helmets and bikes, Team Sky and Team Leopard Trek look remarkably similar. They even both chose the Spanish island of Mallorca for their training camps.

With the non-Shimano-sponsored Garmin-Cervelo also sporting black, white and blue this year it could be a tricky season for commentators and spectators alike!
