Thanks for sharing. Colnago should do a run of frames in this color scheme, and I'll be surprised if they don't. I bet every single one will sell.
And winning helps with marketing. I never researched Colnago's line of bikes until after the TT, although I had heard of them. Their C line of frames is pretty unique, and they offer a huge selection of color schemes, as they should at that price point.
The connection to Colnago bikes and UAE team Emirates I believe is one of their team managers Giuseppi Saronni. Saronni was director Sportif until he brought in Alan Pieper in early 2019 and from what I understand is on the team board of directors and is an advisor, but stepped back from day to day operations.
Saronni won Milano San Remo, Giro d'Italia in the spring of 1983 wearing the rainbow jersey from winning UCI worlds in 1983 while riding on Colnago.
This is the world championship Colnago (I know because one of my best buddies had a replica in the 80's):
So there you go...the connection between Colnago and team UAE via board member Saronni who won the world's back in 1983 on Colnago and whose Del Tongo team was sponsored by it. Its basically an Italian based team that was previously the various incarnations of Italian team Lampre.
