They need another jersey

The maillot coeur de lion... the lion heart jersey (I don't know French, if you hadn't guessed).

For guys like Voekler (if/after he loses the yellow), and Hamilton last year.

Could be pretty close to the combativity points.

There could be some other jerseys, for instance:

Pink jersey: biggest p...no, better not (who could get that? McEwen?)

Any others?

A *DARK* brown for those especially hot days. Make it thick wool too.

G'day,

yeah, i reckon they need a few more jerseys....perhaps one for "the rider who wasn't good enough to win anything else...but we like the colour of his eyes".........or "the rider who promised so much pre tour but hasn't delivered....again!".......or "the rider with the best excuse for winning the previous jersey"........how about, "the rider who was stupid enough to get caught doping...even though they're all doing it...but no-one else got caught"......or ....geez I could go on for hours!,

cheers,

Hitchy

Jocularity aside, I like the idea. How about an online polling system for the "Lionheart" jersey, where viewers vote?

I can see it now......"Tour de Big Brother Francais"

G'day,

You might be on to something here tigerboy.......If Lance keeps dominating the next 10 tours we're gunna need something to keep us interested!...but lets take it a step further....How about the "TDF
reality show"......we could vote riders off, switch riders from tribe to tribe (er..sorry I mean't 'team to Team"), have the challenge were they all have to eat different coloured drugs,we could give extra points for those involved in the best crashes.......you know....'crash in a sprint taking down 10 others X 3.5 degess of difficulty".......the skies the limit!....anyone got Mark Burnetts 'phone number?...me & tigerboy thought of this first!.....Oh crap...I just realised...under this scenario....Lance still wins...
cheers,

Hitchy
