I don't know why nobody came up with that idea sooner.
LOL...you mean the NASCAR look?

ETA: noticed today that RS-L is listed as a Luxembourg team, makes me wonder if RS only agreed to keep giving them any $$ at all if they got to be listed first.

Jens Voigt makes Chuck Norris wash his bike. He can have whatever color he likes.

Before the current setup, Leopard (and lay o pard is correct, not the animal) was the primary. Remember these jerseys that had virtually nothing on them? See the blue stripe?
