TDF riders' unzipped jerseys
I know the summer heat almost mandates that they unzip their jerseys, but doesn't this produce more wind resistance and drag? Well, I'll probably answer my question by saying aerodynamics doesn't matter so much during road stages as it does during time trials.
It just seems odd seeing the jerseys flap like capes behind some of the riders.
One must live the way one thinks or end up thinking the way one has lived.
