Who influenced the design of this monochrome vertically striped jersey? The Carpana jersey from the 60`s, Juventus or Zebras?

Are the monochrome vertical stripes influenced by the Juventus football team, the GS Carpana cycle jersey from the 1960`s or Zebras from the African plains?

The 2015 design is a departure from the predominately black and some would argue subtle and classy kit the team rode in 2014. Cervelo and Castelli combine once again and the jersey features a striking yellow Cervelo `e` on both sleeves.

There is no doubt this design makes it easy to spot the riders in the peloton - although that didn`t stop Steve Cummings slipping past the French duo of Thibaut Pinot and Romain Bardet on his way to a stage victory at the Tour de France.

Daniel Teklehaymanot also had a successful Tour taking the King of the Mountains jersey for four days, the first black African to do so after winning the mountains classification at the Dauphine.
