Canadians - help me pick a jersey.

I'll be going to Italy for vacation and I just learned that my wife's cousin is a cyclist. Although he leans a little towards the roadie end of things I was thinking of getting him a jersey as a gift. I was going to get him one of my mountain bike club's jerseys but they sold out their 2005 inventory and the 2006 jerseys won't be ready until after I leave for vacation.

I would like to get him a jersey as a gift that had a Canadian theme going on. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

That's a pretty nice one. I like it. What do you guys think of these? They're from Cycling Canada. They have several jerseys.

My thoughts exactly. The others are way too busy and remind me too much of NASCAR merchandise. The retro one isn't bad looking but the one you found is so far the winner.

Shouldn't it be more of a hockey cut?

Not a bad idea, too bad you picked the wrong jersey.

Habs pour le win! If you can, dig up one of the old team jerseys from the 90's. A nice blue with red graphics. Very tasteful.
