New Katusha-Alpecin kit for the Tour de France – News shorts

Katusha-Alpecin will debut a new kit at the Tour de France, one that breaks up the all-red jersey with a block of white on the chest and shoulders.

The new jersey was spotted by the German Radsport magazine and a photo posted on Twitter.

With Cofidis, Lotto Soudal, Trek-Segafredo and BMC all having predominantly red jerseys, the change will help the Swiss-registered team stand out from the bunch.


Soupe pulled from Cofidis Tour team

Cofidis sprinter Nacer Bouhanni will be without one of his main lead-out men during this year’s Tour de France. The team announced on Wednesday that Geoffrey Soupe will not take part in the race after showing poor form during Sunday’s French national championships.

Soupe dropped out of the race in Saint-Omer, and then, following medical examinations and a consultation with the team staff, he was removed from the Tour de France squad. He will be replaced by climber Nicolas Edet.
