Default My jersey is too heavy

I had no idea how much extra weight I was carrying. Good thing Nike
has come to the rescue with a 27% lighter "climbing jersey."


25% of this weigth reduction is achieved by lightening your wallet.

Nike claims that their featherweight Hors Categorie climbing jersey is
27 percent lighter due to the use of ultra-light fabrics. We didn't
weigh the HC jersey, but its gossamer feel and futuristic look will
certainly attract attention. Armstrong and USPS will reportedly use
this jersey in the Tour's mountain stages, while Nike will also supply
this to the leaders, green, spotted and white jerseys used to sponsor
the Tour De France.

Next they'll be weighing the competitors' shorts.

Next will be an invisible climbing "skin suit" for maximum weight
savings.

Rault- Next they'll be weighing the competitors' shorts. BRBR

Surprized that some team hasn't painted on a jersey.

Didn't that guy in TX have one of them with the "modesty thong" in it?

As long as they don't go under the UCI's jersey weight limit... ;-3)

May you have the wind at your back.
And a really low gear for the hills!

Invisable skins suits or painted on jerseys... H'mmm it's about time they
allow some women on the tour.
