Garmin-Chipotle Inadvertantly Leaks '09 Kit

The Garmin-Chipotle pro cycling team (seemingly) inadvertantly leaked an image of their 2009 kit on their web page (SlipstreamSports.com).

Although the team has not officially presented their new duds, the '09 kit was worn by rider Julian Dean at the New Zealand pro road race championships earlier this month. Garmin-Chipotle included an image of Dean at this race on their website, thus revealing key elements of the kit.

However, someone with the team must have identified the gaffe because the image has now been deleted from the page in question.

The new kit (as observed on the Slipstream site yesterday) is a predominantly white jersey with orange shoulders. The bibs (or shorts) have predominantly blue side panels over black crotch panels.

Here's the link to the page where the photo had been posted:

UPDATE (4:44 PM EST):

The pic (and new kit design) has been reposted. Here you are:
