Chris Horner doesn't wear gloves.

Many did not wear gloves for the Prologue and TT.
I believe Levi wears them for the regular stages though...It looks like he has them on for this stage.

Most guys don't wear them in training or TT's, but 95% of racers wear them in regular races.

I should wear mine more often, especially in crits, but I've just never gotten used to them in my 15 years. I wear them a little more often now in technical crits, but the rest of the time it feels wayyyy better without.
