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.
just my .02 worth

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.

Note the combination jersey is green, not blue.
