Are Team Visma | Lease a Bike going blue for Tour de France? Wout van Aert & Jonas Vingegaard spotted riding blue and yellow bike at altitude

As has become the custom in recent years, Team Visma | Lease a Bike are set to change from their traditional yellow for the Tour de France in attempt to avoid a potential clash with the Maillot Jaune. What that jersey will look like though, remains to bee seen.

Much like the fact no one yet knows who will wear the Team Visma | Lease a Bike jerseys at the Tour de France, given the string of high-profile injuries and the likes of Wout van Aert, Christophe Laporte and Jonas Vingegaard training hard at altitude in an attempt to get themselves fit in time for the Grand Depart, what those as of now unknown riders will be wearing also remains a tightly lipped secret.

In a potential insight into what may be to come however, the French outlet DirectVélo have been in person to Tignes to join the likes of van Aert, Laporte and Vingegaard and in their pictures, the Team Visma | Lease a Bike superstars can be seen riding on a strikingly beautiful blue and yellow Cervelo. Could this be a sign of a blue and yellow jersey?

A few days ago, blue, black and purple Team Visma | Lease a Bike jersey was leaked online. Reports are conflicted about the validity of these images however, with Cyclism'Actu reporting the images to be the Team Visma | Lease a Bike jersey for the upcoming Tour de France, although Wielerflits countered this with their own report alleging the jersey being circulated was not the soon to be revealed Visma jersey.

With so much uncertainty surrounding all aspects of Team Visma | Lease a Bike's Tour de France preparations, if they will be able to take a third successive Maillot Jaune, it must surely go down as the team's best Grand Tour win.
