Best Team Jersey?

This is not a poll, just an opportunity for anyone who cares to express themselves. Let's limit it to major pro teams, not necessarily the top 10-20, but at least teams one is likely to see on OLN coverage.

My vote would be Panaria. I just love that particular combination of bright colors. Second would be Kelme.

Well, that goes without saying. That's why I limited the field of consideration. Otherwise it just wouldn't be fair to all the other teams.

I actually think most of the jerseys are pretty good looking. Some, though, make me wonder what the designer was thinking. And some of those shorts are NOT flattering from behind at all.

Rainman, here's a laugh for your day today. I saw your post and thought "Cool, what are good riding teams and clubs in New Jersey." I was surprised you had posted this becuase I didn't recall you being from "Jersey" since I do take note of local riders. Anyway, I figured out what your post meant when I read it.

I don't have any opinion at all except that the guy in the orange has amazing legs.

Euskadi! Of course I would say as I a am a big fan and have a history there.

However get rid of teh (*&^*%^&(* ORANGE.

Please go back to traditional colours. Not as flashy but an honour for Euskal Herria

Rainman, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who does goofball things.

You're a real man to be able say (and say it "outloud" to boot) that he has great legs. He does, it's that simple.

Although there can be a fair amount of dispute about this, I believe Domo have the best shirt. With an honourable mention for Credit Agricole and the former Casino team.

And don't think anyone will ever don a shirt as ugly as that of the Z-Legeay team with which LeMond had a contract once. Also the designer of the former Gan outfit needs to be shot.

That's why it is hard to pick just one. For the most part, I like understatement so Domo and Fassa Bortolo fit that bill. But I do like Credit Agricole for some reason. But then, I can also really get into flashy, like Hawaiian or aloha print shirts, of which I now have a collection of about 7! So I also like Euskatel-Euskadi and Rabobank. But then the green and blue of Kelme-Costa Blanca is kind of relaxing. And since I am riding a Giant right now, I root a little for ONCE.

But when it gets right down to it, I just love those flashy Panaria colors. Wish they were in the Tour.

Xavier, now I will have to do some research to learn about Euskal Herria. A good friend of mine is of Basque descent and I have had a bit of a fascination for the Basque people.
Regards,
Raymond

It's hard picking the best jersey, but I think Telekom's is the worst. I just look at all that pink and I feel my strength draining away. Hey! Maybe that's the idea!
:thumbdn:

'Victoire, I agree. Z-legeay jersey was pretty hideous. Didn't it have, like, a Z with a little puff coming out? I thought it looked like a Z cutting a f@rt.

My favorites? I like some of the older jerseys of teams-gone-by, like 7-11, Cafe de Columbia, and Subaru-Montgomery.
:cool:

I actually find most popular pro team jerseys attractive. That's why I like wearing them (they come cheap here, just $6 each) while riding. Of course, there are a few ugly ones tha I would never want to be caught dead in. One is the Z jersey that Greg Lemond used to wear. Just for the record, the coolest one right now is the USPS jersey. Don't flame me for liking it, I almost dropped $65 for one when I was in the US....but I thought about the $6 versions that would soon be coming out in my country.

I would say that the best all time jersey is the La Vie Claire jersey of Greg LeMond and Bernard Hinault. A Mondrian (sp?) design in red, yellow, blue and grey. In '86 they had a battery sponsor, and their backs looked like they had huge D batteries.

Current jersey, I would have to go with last season's Rabobank (this season's is horrible) or Domo.

Worst jersey of all time, Ton Ton Tapis or Tulip. Ton Ton had this black and white strip thing with a guy holding a roll of carpeting on it. Tulip was sea foam green. Geesh.

Current worst would be either Jelly Belly (US) or Jean Delatour, although at least their colors are a bit less harsh on the eyes this season.

I agree with Ovalmaster. Jelly Belly( a local race team to me by the way, headquartered in No. San Diego County) is pretty impressive going down the road. Catches your eye like Mapei's does. Jelly Belly, yes best 'domestic jersey.' When I saw Tour De France go by, noticed stripes on racing shorts of Telekom are reflecterized, great for being seen..Don't care for pink. Guess, Livingston cares for the green more than the pink?
Among category 1 pros', I vote a tie vote. Last year's U.S. Postal and Euskatel. The uniforms the pro's wear are meant to be screaming. You try to catch out one team in the maze at 30 mph.
Even though I vote for Euskatel, jersey I broke down and bought, Cofidis. Pretty impressive. Reason, before Armstrong- Julich merited the colors.

Hate to say it, but I've still got a Team Z jersey (and postcards and water bottle) as I watched Robert Millar do the last stage of the TdF when he was cycling with Z

Still fits too.

Could I put a vote in for the mid 90's Festina Jersey?

Yeah - where $6 jerseys? I bet I am closer than most to there.

BTW - I think Rabo is pretty classy, but then maybe you would expect me to say that.

Cheers...Gary
