2013 Euskaltel jersey revealed



Next year's Euskaltel Euskadi jersey, manufactured by Belgian brand Bio Racer, was unveiled to the public today. While sticking with the iconic orange theme, the jersey is distinctly different to previous years. Black makes its introduction, while the 'Euskadi'-logo has gotten a makeover. The big 'K', a press release reads, "combines tradition and modernity" and is "intimately related to the Basque language".

The Orbea logo features, as its done since the team's inception back in 1994, as well as two 'Ikurriñas', the Basque flag - one on the left sleeve, and one on the back of the shorts.

The equipación was presented at the team's headquarters in Derio, with General Manager Igor González de Galdeano and Bio Racer's commercial director, Mateo Hermans, present. To signal the team's intention to keep unearthing local talent, a trio of promising youngsters showed off the clothing.

The trio of Josu Albizua (Álava), Gotzon Martín (Bizkaia) and Lierni Lekuona (Gipuzkoa) got the honour of presenting the jersey to the press. All three of them were fresh from competing in the cyclo-cross race 'Cross de Nailloux' in Toulouse, France, this past weekend.

According to Galdeano, the jersey will "continue to make Euskaltel riders stand out in the international peloton because of the traditional orange colour".

What do you make of the jersey?

Well it's not too far from the last one and I like the black detail.

I just wonder about availability, never heard of the manufacturer so will there be a UK stockist?

...and its released too late for santa to bring me one :-)

Doesn't look bad. I preferred the old orange, but the rest of the design is sleek.

AFAIK BioRacer is a Belgian brand, shouldn't be too hard to find once the regular (online) stores are stocked for next year.

The new kits are bad ass. Totally dig the ikurrina and the black.

the Euskadi banner is resplendent against the orange. I would like to see how large the Ikurinna is on the back. Indeed it's a travesty beyond Euro comprehension that they refuse to sport Etxeondo
