2011 Tour de France, stage 2 tech, BMC skinsuit

BMC Racing team members had some interesting skinsuits. Fabric texture can have a big impact on aerodynamic drag (consider the area of the body vs. the area of the bike). Strangely, the fabric had lines across the body, not along it. Do they know something we don’t? Photo: Nick Legan
