Cool Leaders Jersey

The Tour of West Flanders has a neat looking leaders jersey I noticed. It's nice to have a departure from the usual yellow (I know there are others but most are yellow). Oh and it looks like Casper pi$$ed himself, but that's unrelated to the jersey.

it's actually pretty ugly (based on seeing it in larger format, on TV).

And the podium girl on the right has lost her will to live.

And hey, they let them have their sponsor's logo - that's progress.
(though I liked the '?' jerseys)

Hmmm...Flanders seemingly has adopted the Tour of California stance on podium girl esthetics.
