OCP wardrobe suggestions please

So I'm heading to Lancaster in August for the Covered Bridges ride (yes, you should come too). And lucky me, Cydewaze is letting me scoot around on his Scat:



Yes, I'm actually wanting to win this year's OCP prize. Giggle away. So the Davitamon/Lotto jersey has really grown on me as of late, and I'm thinking of it to compliment the Scat. What other jerseys can I entertain? It all starts with the jersey, I'll compliment the rest from there...

I'll let you borrow my Dream and full Rabobank kit.

What size are your feet?

I'm thinking the CSC or the Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears kit. There's too much blue in the Davitamon-Lotto jersey. It's a great kit and a great team, it just doesn't match the bike.

The CSC kit is cool, but too much black. It has a chance, seeing as I am becoming a Zabriske fan...

but I warn you, I may get one myself.

Honestly though 'dex, given your affinity for bridesmaids, I thought you be leaning towards taffeta.

Well, you're gonna have to go with taffeta. The Bibi-tollah just gave me the Duvel jersey. It's very slick.

And I must say, my general all around hotness is now approaching solar flare intensity. I might have to wear gloves that don't match the jersey just to back things off enough so that the great unwashed can gaze upon me without damaging their eyes.

You're safe: I ordered the Duvel jersey along with my new favorite, the Twin Six Cabby, and lo and behold, they sent me the long sleeve. So I'm coming wearing something else. NOT the Bridesmaid's dress either. Though I'm positive that would keep Bibi giggling for all 62 miles....

If I'd have seen this thread originally, I would have suggested the Rabobank, Dutch Champion jersey (one like Michael Boogerd wore in the TDF).

If there's two things I hate, it's intolerance to other people's cultures, and the Dutch.


yeah we'll see what I come up with
