The letter of the USAC/UCI law seems to suggest that advertising on jerseys/skinsuits is a no-no. Is this rule applied at the MABRA level? I'm riding unattached.

Thanks

Deep Blue TT?

I doubt anyone is going to care.

... are you coming from an ITU background?
(curious as this is the only place I've ever experienced this being enforced)

yeah, not a concern... show up and ride.

No worries. No one generally gives a poop. Especially in a TT where you are not riding as a team (in which case not wearing team kit would be considered a faux paux - because of the tactics).

I wore a 2007 Team USA skinsuit to all of my TTs last season. No issues.

Hi,

In the "bad" old days, an official made me put masking tape over the Sidi logos on my shoes because the logos were larger than permitted in the USCF rule book. Now I see guys racing in Masters Cat 1-4 races wearing pro kits. Generally, one or two guys at most, but they are there and obvious.

I'm not sure which is worse.

Good luck in your TT.
