Should Yellow just be a jersey?

by mattbibbings   July 2, 2012  

The colour yellow seems to have leaked over the years in the pro peloton.

No longer just a Jersey to denote the GC leader/winner, now it's his shorts/socks/bike/tyres/sunglasses/team mates armband(!)

Even Sky seem to be wearing Yellow helmets to denote the leading team.

Is it just me being a bluff old traditionalist or would the Yellow Jersey carry more x-factor if it was just a Jersey?

Yes, jersey only is a lot more stylish. The yellow helmets for the leading team are just plain ridiculous.
