Rule # 17: Team Kit is for members of the Team
Wearing Pro Team kit is also questionable if you're not paid to wear it. If you must fly the colors of Pro teams, all garments should match perfectly, i.e. no Mapei jersey with Kelme shorts and Telekom socks.
Most people won't even recognize the names of the teams listed there as their cycling fan-dom is too new and annoying. This rule is flagrantly violated by many people. It's actually one of the ways in which serious athletes mark and then subsequently make fun of the less serious athletes. Well, maybe "serious" isn't the best description. How about ignorant? That works.

Rule #26: Shorts and socks should be like Goldilocks.
Not too long and not too short. No socks is a no-no, as are those ankle length ones that should only be worn by female tennis players.
|Tom Boonen is a perfect model for most things. Except for his coke habit.|
On a different tangent, Augusta 70.3 is this weekend! Should be fun. Some stiff comp there, as Kenneth will make his half-ironman debut, Tom Clifford from Wilmington (recently ran a 1:14 at Steelhead), and Jeremy Sipos will also be racing. Plus others I'm sure I don't know about. My goal is simply to do the best that I can, no chasing times, only going as hard as possible for a touch over 4 hours...
