Confusing Pro Jerseys: TdF 2011 Edition

Old stuff, I know, but relevant as we all try to figure out who is chasing Contador over the next three weeks of TdF action. Flandria Cafe points out the painfully obvious (that’s not a knock on the site!): some of the biggest teams this season have jerseys that are, for all intents and purposes, IDENTICAL! Definitely worth a read.

But, what really makes it worth a visit is this incredible graphic of old national team and trade team jerseys from the TdF. [Yes, the Tour de France was raced by national teams for a number of years, before trade teams really became viable]. I am actually going to see about having this blown up to create an office poster.
