Milltag "Peloton Price Is Right"

by jijiandnoah   July 6, 2011  

Don't know if anyone else has come across this yet but thought it might be of interest to a few - Milltag (a company producing jerseys designed by various artists) are doing a special version of the Price Is Right throughout the Tour. Basically they've put a rider's name to each of the 10 or so jerseys they have for sale, and each day of the tour they are reducing the price of that particular jersey based on the rider's performance. So, for example, the jersey linked to Thor Hushovd is now about £55 I think...

I thought it was quite a nice idea although tbh I haven't been blown away by their stuff so far, bit too bright for me (did like the Tom Simpson one though)

I do like the idea and also like the jersey linked to Hushovd, but they have only done to stage 2, if they had done further in, that would be a bargain Big Grin

Maybe they're just really slack in updating the prices - prob still worth watching in case they do

Well they have updated today, but the rules seem to not work out with what they have, lol

The price reductions are as follows:
£5 off the jersey any for a stage winner;
£5 off for wearer of the yellow jersey on any single day;
£2.50 off for wearer of polka-dot, green and white jerseys on a single day:
£2.50 off for a GC podium position on any single day;
£5 off for yellow jersey retained after 3 consecutive days;
£2.50 off for wearer of polka-dot, green and white jerseys retained after 3 consecutive days; and
£2.50 off for any GC podium position retained after 3 consecutive days;

STAGE 1: Won by Philippe Gilbert (£5 off Leinz). Third for Thor Hoshovd (£2.50 off McHoy). White jersey for Geraint Thomas (£2.50 off Waste).
STAGE 2: Hushovd takes Yellow jersey (£5.00 off McHoy). Team Sky third (£2.50 off Wiggo II, Waste and Piascik)
STAGE 3: No positions effect prices (although Thor retains Yellow)So Thor still in yellow, i would say thats a single day, so another £5
STAGE 4: Thor still in yellow for third day (£5.00 off McHoy), Super G still in white for third day (£2.50 off Waste).
STAGE 5: Win for Cav (£5.00 off Manx Missile). Thor retains yellow. Again £5 for Thor??
STAGE 6: Win for Ed BH (£5.00 off Piascik), Third for Thor Hoshovd (£2.50 off McHoy).

What stupid prices the shirts started at anyways, did they bump them up just before the tour?

Well, clearly maths isn't their stong point Big Grin

Dunno how much they usually go for, I think they're quite expensive in the £80-90 bracket

Wow, see now thats high for a top, but i'm hoping Thor has a few more days because i do want the Mchoy top, but cant justify the price

I could always just go here http://www.richmitch.co.uk/ and grab the pics and send them to China to have it made for me, but i'd much rather get an original Big Grin
