Team Sky unveils racy and revealing cycling suits (PHOTO)

Team Sky's new racing suit for the 2014 season will leave very little to cycling fans' imagination after Chris Froome unveiled the Rapha-made gear via Twitter.

The defending Tour de France champion modeled the sheer, skin-tight suit that is so close to actual skin they might need a Band-Aid to fix a tear.

The sheer, netted fabric — that shows a little nipple — with a black panel covering the groin area, looks more like a Miley Cyrus castoff designed by Lady Gaga than a top-cycling team's uniform.

As one Twitter fan pointed out, maybe this is what Team Sky boss Sir Dave Brailsford meant when he promised "transparency" in his team.

'Trying out my new 2014 @TeamSky @rapharacing kit. The skin suit takes #marginalgains to the next level,' he tweeted.

Froome's referring to Team Sky's intense philosophy of "marginal gains", which basically means their thorough examination and improvement in anyway possible for every aspect that could impact their rider's performance. 

This can mean nutrition, physiology and psychology to ergonomics and, of course, their equipment.
