    ATOC race leader's jersey

    Is it me or does the ATOC race leader, points and KOM jerseys make it look like the racer is wearing their bibs over their jersey?

    LOL. Those look ridiculous.

    And no, it not just you.

    The most aggressive rider jersey is kind of cool though, bib-look aside.

    The "most courageous rider" must have something to do with the ability to put aside your taste and don that jersey.

    Hey I was one of those last year. Actually, I procrastinated, then missed out. Somehow, they added a Most Courageous jersey in my size a month later, at the great price. I jumped on it. It was the blue Break Away From Cancer jersey. I absolutely HAD to have one because......I'm cheap and it was only $20!

    Whoever wears the Most Aggressive jersey on a day will not earn that jersey the next day. That black will absorb all the sun's energy and suck the life out of the poor fellow. It could be warm on some of those stages.

    I didn't think at first they looked like bibs - but now I see it.

    Nothing wrong with those sales. I got a leaders jersey shipped for like $27
    Where else you gonna buy even a plain Hincapie jersey for $27?

    These jerseys would never fit me so I wouldn't buy one. But Hillbasher bought a few last year then GAVE one to Gina. She wears it so next time I just may pick up a couple for Gina at that price.

    He gave this jersey to her. 2010 design, not sure which category, hopefully not king of the hills.

    I got one like Gina's as a gift this Christmas (a 2010 jersey, yes). It's a bit big for me, but works well over a wool base layer, so good for coolish rides in the mountains.

    And, it's Hincapie brand and full-zip, so I really like it but more for it's function that for it's look.
