one of them is that i've gotten to know many folks "in the industry" -- here, the cycling industry. as a result, i learn about many things BEFORE they become widely known to the masses.
well, it just so happens that i have a friend inside one of the largest cycling clothing design and manufacture companies in the world, and she has tipped me to just a few of the new kits that will be gracing the race venues in the upcoming 2009 season, beginning with cyclocross nationals in december.
go here to see more. a word to the clever: the names attached to the photos are NOT the actual team names; they are trade names, to help keep the team image more of a surprise for the unveiling later this year.
enjoy. [can you guess which kit is headed for sioux city?]
