Tape on the ear plugs?

I was watching the Tejay interview this morning and noticed he had tape to keep his ear plug in place; does anyone know what kind of tape it is?

I've used thin strips of regular old athletic tape to hold in earphones in the past I'd imagine they are using the same.

It looks like elastoplast but thicker. I thought this might be a standard and known tape used around the pro circuit.

Why you want to tape your iPod in so you can look fully pro?

If you're good enough to race with radios, the team will usually supply the tape as well.

Probably so his ear-phones stay in, Captain Butthat.

Med Tape.

I tried last year thinking it would cut some of the wind noise. Didn't make a difference.
