I don't know about bad jerseys but it is hard for me to tell the difference between Quick-step and Discovery on tv so I think Discovery could have done better.

That whole uniform is just terrible. I rewound the DVR on Sunday to show that to my wife and she agrees.

Domina Vicanze is my least favorite of the pro tour teams (at least I think DV is ProTour). My favorite is probably CSC or Euskaltel.

Worst: Lampre. You too can look like you crapped your bibs! And I miss Saeco's kit.
Best: Gerolsteiner, although light blue is getting too common in the peloton.
Honorable Mention: T-Mobile. Unchanged and impossible to miss.

The rear view suggests an electric cattle-prod-type seatpost so the team manager can remote control an up-tempo.....

no... if a cycling jersey posed as a small child, I'd think it was cute and appreciate it's youth, innocence and ask it if it wants to watch cartoon network and have a bowl of cereal.

I think it was the late 80's early 90's neon that did it to be honest!

cable43,

What about the Bianchi jersey from 2 years ago, I thought that
was pretty classy.
Lampre gets my vote for ugliest.

I recently saw a Picture of vinokruav in this



But I cant decide if the new "retro" is better than the old one:




Gah I cant decide.
