Ag2r La Mondiale (Fra)
No change here - fingers crossed the poo-brown shorts have been retained.
Riders to watch: Nicolas Roche, John Gadret, Rinaldo Nocentini.
The Kazakhs have come over all Tron. Still won't match your bike, though.
Riders to watch: Roman Kreuziger, Alexandre Vinokourov, Allan Davis.
BMC Racing Team (USA)
The American squad have stuck with their 2010 design, which looks nice enough.
Riders to watch: Cadel Evans, George Hincapie, Taylor Phinney.
Cofidis (Fra) (Pro Continental)
Sticking with the 2010 design: bright, bold and does the job.
Riders to watch: David Moncoutié, Samuel Dumoulin, Rein Taaramae.
No change to the design here - nor to the easily-spotted-in-the-bunch colour.
Riders to watch: Samuel Sanchez, Igor Anton, Egoi Martinez.
Europcar (Fra) (Pro Continental)
Green is in! A lovely looking jersey vying with HTC as top of the crop.
Riders to watch: Thomas Voeckler, Pierre Rolland, Anthony Charteau
What they would call ‘a mash-up' on Glee. Garmin meets Cervélo and it looks pretty special.
Riders to watch: David Millar, Thor Hushovd,
Retro-fabulous loveliness. Our fave.
Riders to watch: Mark Cavendish, Tony Martin, Peter Velits.
Last year's kit comes over all red, and looks better for it.
Riders to watch: Joaquim Rodriguez, Filippo Pozzato, Alexandr Kolobnev.
There's retro, and then there's just stuck in the Eighties...
Riders to watch: Damiano Cunego, Michele Scarponi, Simon Spilak.
Nice, Rapha-esque design, although a main sponsor still appears to be missing...
Riders to watch: Fabian Cancellara, Andy Schleck, Frank Schleck.
Dividing opinions, but a huge improvement over previous incarnations.
Riders to watch: Vincenzo Nibali, Ivan Basso, Peter Sagan.
Couldn't be more different from the Caisse d'Epargne design. The jury is out.
Riders to watch: Xavier Tondo, David Arroyo, Marzio Bruseghin.
Omega Pharma-Lotto (Bel)
Same corporate colours, updated design. We shouldn't like it, but we do.
Riders to watch: Philippe Gilbert, Jurgen Van Den Broeck, Andre Greipel.
Quick Step (Bel)
Time for something a bit different, please, Quick Step. 3D design?
Riders to watch: Tom Boonen, Sylvain Chavanel, Gert Steegmans.
Some might think Molteni, but we think it's inching towards Euskaltel territory...
Riders to watch: Oscar Freire, Matti Breschel, Robert Gesink.
Saxo Bank-SunGard (Den)
The CSC eagle rears its head once again and there's a bit more blue.
Riders to watch: Richie Porte, Chris Anker Sorensen, Gustav Larsson.
Team Sky (GBr)
Same again. An IG Markets logo is the only addition to the 2010 version.
Riders to watch: Bradley Wiggins, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Geraint Thomas.
Go the big ‘R'! More vibrant than 2010, and not blue and black like everyone else.
Riders to watch: Lance Armstrong, Janez Brajkovic, Chris Horner.
A tweaked version of the 2010 jersey, this original design is tasteful yet easy to spot.
Riders to watch: Stijn Devolder, Romain Feillu, Riccardo Ricco.
