I was looking for the T-Mobile champion jersey that Vino wore last year. I found this, thought I'd share.

Kinda cool.
Seriously?! :confused:

I guess this is a matter of personal taste, and Vino is one of my favorite riders, but...
those turquoise/yellow colors are really ugly. They definitely shouldn't be worn by even slightlhy overweight riders, or people who sweat a lot.

Vino's is easily one of the ugliest kits out there. The word is that he designed it himself. Anyone notice that he changed the jersey mid-Tour last year, because the sponsor, T-Mobile, was unreadable? I wonder if the team made him do that.

I doubt Vino "designed" it. The color combo is from national flag of Kazakhstan, and this is where 99% of ugliness comes from. Not much one can do about it, except make jersey very yellow with turquois bands, but then it would confict with mallot jaune.

I will say that Vino's Liberty Seguros kit is considerably less ulgy that his TMob kit. Its got a bit of color in there to break it up more. But it is still pretty bad. Too each his own.

I dunno, still pretty ugly. At least during LBL commentators (both OLN and cycling.tivoo) could easily pick him out in the crowd.

Sir, you obviously have no sense of design or aesthetics. ;)

The T-Mobile design, and Colors, are far superior to the Liberty one, IMO

Do you realize that you answered your own question? :rolleyes:

I know what Vino reminds me.

Vino looks like a smurf on a bike. Practically twins separated at birth:
