TdF 2012: Special Jersey Edition

Why, oh why, could Wiggins not have won the British champs again this year? The ideal of three bad-ass champions jersey on the super minimalist Sky kit was too much to hope for.

My money isn’t on Wiggins…but I’d have no problem with him winning. I’m just stoked to have a TdF without Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador.



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.
