    TdF needs a new jersey

    I'm thinking "Maillot Clyde" awarded to the best rider over 170 pounds.

    Hushovd deserves more than just a couple of stage wins to recognize his awesome display of beefy power.

    I vote for the "whiners" jersey.

    Andy Schleck would have been a shoo-in this year, were that jersey awarded.
    Regards,

    That was the EXACT thought I had when I read the title of this thread!!! And we already have the jersey layout ... looks just like Leopard Treks ...

    How many guys (besides Thor) in the race right now would even qualify for that award? Hincapie and Voight are listed at 170 pounds. Boonen is 180, but he's not in the race any more.

    He's named after a mythological Norse God and he slays souls on his bicycle. He doesn't need vindication.

    letour.fr lists Hincapie at 83 kg, but georgehincapie.com lists him at 165 pounds. Clearly, an investigation is in order.

    Incidentally, if the rider weights on letour.fr are to be believed, the current holder of the maillot clyde would be Vladimir Karpets (79 kg), who has almost 17 minutes over his nearest rival, Yannick Talabardon. If you don't count the weight of his hair, though, Karpets might be under 170.

    Has anyone ever seen Vladamir Karpets and Kenny G together?

    I thought not!!!
