US Postal was wearing Blue & Yellow Jerseys & shorts in Paris

At first I thought maybe they made up the ~5 minute deficit that they had to T-mobile in the ITT on Saturday and had gained the "Team Yellow", but when I saw T-Mobile actually take the team trophy on Sunday, it was obvious that the Jersey was just to commemorate Lance and/or to sell some more clothing.

Anycase, I thought they looked cool. Anyone have any pictures of them?

Do you know if they did anything like that during prior years when the victory was assured in the last stage?

Last year they had a 'retro' kit - grey and white. In 1999 their bikes had some new paintjobs and grip tape if I recall correctly.

Last year on the last stage Postal wore gray kits - presumably to up the merchandising options from the Tour.

Yes I do recall. The splash of yellow through me off as to its meaning.
