    He was the winner last year, so it is most likely the winners jersey from last year. Just a guess, some races do that.

    I think that is the combination jersey. Since Mayo was leading all competitions after the prologue and got the yellow jersey, Millar got the green jersey due to his second place in the points competition and Armstrong got the next jersey (which apparently is the blue combination jersey, I would have thought that the KOM-competition would rate higher).

    I wondered if it might be a new USPS jersey since adding
    Berry Floor? then I saw the Dauphine Libere on the shoulder
    so I'd have to agree with Csson its the combined.
    Yes DuraAce looks funny, and the crankset is awful.

    i thought it was the new postie jersey too until i saw the group pic. his is different from all theirs.

    I can't believe shimano got rid of the tall hoods. shimano hoods fit my hands nicely. they just can't leave a good thing alone, i guess.

    Caption: Christophe Moreau (Credit Agricole), combination classification leader David Millar (Cofidis, M) and Lance Armstrong (US Postal, R) all displaying faces of determination.

    Note the combination jersey is green, not blue.

    No . The jerseys in DL:

    Classement général (maillot jaune et bleu - CREDIT AGRICOLE)
    Classement du meilleur grimpeur (maillot rouge à pois blancs - FIAT)
    Classement individuel aux points (maillot vert - Région RHONE-ALPES)
    Classement individuel du combiné (maillot bleu - SAMSE La boîte à outils)
    From http://criterium.ledauphine.com/crit...classement.php.

    Thanks, in that case the caption to that photo is wrong.
