From another thread

A list of new rider jerseys a friend of mine just e-mailed to me:

Red with lightning bolts and devil’s head logos – for the overall leader (regardless of whose blood he’s running on)

White – for the best rider actually using his own blood

No jersey at all – for the best rider actually using his own blood – and who didn’t transfuse his own stored blood from the winter back into his system right before the race

Yellow – best rider who takes nothing stronger than a multi-vitamin

Question Mark Jersey – best rider who can prove the weird blood markers in his samples are the result of being a chimera in the womb

Green and Brown – best rider who can finish the Tour even though he frequently collapse on climbs foaming at the mouth and barfing a la Jesus Manzano

Inverse Polka Dot Jersey – best rider who has never roomed with Richard Virenque or David Millar

I'd barely count the CM as ride at all. More of an exercise in staying upright at slow speeds. Can we bomb one one day? YEA a CM rip in traffic would be fun and we'd be at the patio in 45min-1hr.. I can see some folks not wanting to do 60km AND the CM.

My friends aren't really hardcore cyclists (one of them has seen the light and bought a frame to build up, roadie). They've mostly just been riding with me around the neighbourhood so far.
