Rock Racing’s PR man Sean Weide told Twitterland:
“Rock Racing is not only drawing the attention of fans with its colorful, special team kits, but the race officials have also taken notice.
“In Wednesday’s communique, the officials wrote “(we) have noted the variations in advertising and color of the jerseys…This will be reported to the UCI for their attention.”
“So, for the first time this season, Rock Racing might be fined for its jerseys.”
The Rock Racing team is known for creating event race-specific kit. As I reported on BikeBiz.com, the replica shorts-and-jersey combos cost £325.
I can’t speak Latin, but Mark Winters, UK importer of Fuji bikes, says the graphics on the bikes used by Rock Racing in Tour of Britain, say: “Kill them all, take no prisoners.” A message for UCI wonks, perhaps?
