Two new Belgian pro tour kits for 2012

The 2012 teams are beginning to be announced and new jerseys are coming into the peloton. 2011 saw the end of the Belgian amalgam of Omega-Pharma and Lotto. The pharmaceutical giant Omega-Pharma wanted a more multinational presence with a mega-budget team, while Lotto preferred to stay to it’s national Belgian market. Quickstep joined into the fray and we’ve got the same number of teams with Omega-Pharma jumping to another Belgian ship.

I guess White, Black and Icy blue will once again be the colours of big-money as Omega-Pharma Quickstep seem to have just adopted the Leopard-Trek jerseys from last year. Lotto-Belisol continues with their dynamic colours, shapes and lines with these jerseys being similar to those the Ladies team wore last year.

I’m not a huge fan of either, but I really don’t like the “new” OP/Quickstep look over what Quickstep had these last few years.
