    Create a Jersey Specifically for Domestiques

    Apologize for asking this question if it has been covered elsewhere in the "forum," but as I watched Jens Voigt (and other domestiques) stuff water bottles in/around his jersey I could not help but wonder why domestiques are not equipped with special team jerseys with pockets in back, in front, on the shoulders, on the chest, etc? I wonder about this every year, but I'm certain this is NOT a unique query; there must be pro rules precluding such jerseys. Does anyone know?

    Interesting question. A bunch of extra pockets for water bottles and such would be handy. But might also catch the wind when they go out front to pull.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    I thought you were proposing a reward jersey to be worn by the guy who totes the most water and pulls the most vertical km. What would that look like?

    Actually it is not a bad idea at all. At least then the 5 - 10 racers that are vying for the yellow jersey could be more easily identified.

    As that guy was stuffing his jersey full of bottles I was hearing all of the weight weenies throughout the world groaning! "How in the world can that guy even ride his bike with an extra 10-15lbs of weight on it?"

    Seems to me that it would be easier to just hand over a musette bag (sp?) full of bottles. Of course, then they wouldn't get the 10 second push everytime a bottle came out the window.

    Sounds like the sort of thing that would be sure to arouse the UCI's picayune inclinations.

    Seems like an easy enough retrofit.

    Wrong forum.

    You want Touring. Down the hall, past the Road forum, left at SS/FG and you'll see it. Can't miss it

    Well, in his defense, it is called the Tour de France.

    Just a leisurely ride through the French countryside.
