    Bad Form to Wear a Beer Jersey in a Race?

    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.
    All I said was that our son, the apple of our three eyes, Martha being a cyclops, our son is a beanbag, and you get testy!

    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
    bonus points if you open a cold brew at the start line.

    What about the shirtless option? Everybody appreciates a sweaty shirtless guy on a bike.

    Does anyone remember Coors Light Racing team? Wear anything you want an careless what others think.

    It not the jersey that's on the man but rather the man that's in the jersey!

    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.

    Depends on where the race is being held...
    Prison yard, probably ok.
    elementary school, maybe not so much

    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 would totally rock pink, if it didn't have any real meaning. Just imagine the faces on people as a pink guy rockets past them.

    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 rednecks 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 >.>;;
    There are cyclists in West Virginia??!! Really? - Check it Out @ WVCYCLING

    Obvious jab at Andrea there...... Funny though....
    If confronted by a mountain lion, it's best to pretend to be as big as possible. But not big as in important, ie, "Do You Know Who I Am?".

    I had to wear a white t-shirt once because I brought a sleeveless jersey by mistake. I tried to wear the sleeveless, but the official said no. I guess i was really livin' on the edge leaving 3 more inches of shoulder exposed like that

    The answer is obvious: definitely go with Curious George. You'll be the favorite of the 8 & under crowd. Who cares what anybody else thinks?

    mmmmmmmmmmBeer

    There is a team in Central New York that is sponsored by one of the best breweries in America. Brewery Ommegang sponsors a team and they put on a cyclocross race at the brewery every year.

    They have really sweet kits in full belgian national colors(Ommegang brews Belgian style beers).

    So, nothing wrong with a beer jersey. Wear what you like and have fun.
