my wife just informed me she washed my only solid colored summer jersey with a pair of our sons velcro sandals. the velcro has eaten holes in the jersey.

the only other jerseys i have are:
- curious george jersey (father's day gift)
- lienine's jersey
- red wool jersey with rainbow stripe cuffs
- blue wool longsleeve
- castelling long sleeve thermal
- yellow long sleeve commuter

do i need to get a new solid colored jersey before my first citizen/Cat5 race?

I don't think there are many snobs in cat. 5. If you listen carefully, however, you might hear mocking from the cat. 3s as they warm up. Wear whichever one is the fastest.

Wow, then I guess my Man-Boy Love Association jersey is completely
out of the question.

I remember a cat 5 race with a guy wearing a white V-neck undershirt. it was great, he kept taking these crazy fliers off the front. I'm not sure if he ended up finishing, but I appreciated his less than serious approach to the whole thing. my point is that in cat 5, I wouldn't worry about it. wear whatever you want

just put trucker nutz on the saddle and you can wear whatever you want :thumbsup:
bonus points if you open a cold brew at the start line.

Carib. You, my friend, have good taste.


As far as jerseys, I'm still waiting for someone to show up with one of these kits:

There's a good cat. 3 racer here who says he'll wear this. Cracks me up. I told him that he had better get his 2 upgrade before he breaks that out.

Serious answer: wear anything you want as long as it's not a team jersey or any kind of national or world championship jersey.

Try to pick up an out of state, state Championship jersey to wear. You know, some obscure state like TN.

that kit looks like someone begging for a libel suit.
doubt anything would come of it but...

as long as you're not wearing another team's kit you're fine.

I wear this all of the time around town, but I try to stay with solid colors when riding with others (including race)


In my own crazy head, I believe that crazy WV ******** will be less tempted to hit a cyclist with a bright beer jersey, compared to say.... a pink and baby blue WVU cycling jersey I saw last week >.>;;
