Servais Knaven gives CN the big news: High Road's wildly successful, butt-ugly all-black club kit, purchased from BikeNashbar.com for the start of the 2008 season, will be replaced at the Tour of California for something resembling a professional kit. No longer will course marshals face the dilemma of trying to remove what looks like a local interloper from the peloton. Instead, people like Andre Greipel and Mark Cavendish and Gerald Ciolek will pass by in a tasteful, white flash.
And there was much rejoicing. Coming soon: the Podium Cafe Spring 2008 Fashion Show.
