Have you seen Super Mario's new team jersey. It makes me want to vomit. Take a look.

It looks like he's substituting his seat for a patented Michael Jackson package grab! That has to be a top contender for the ugliest '02 team kit contest.

I still kinda like how Cipo adds some color to the sport, like the muscle TT suit. Otherwise his ego is a bit much.
It's all an imagemr_spin
Jan 8, 2002 5:15 PM
From what I've seen and read, that's all an image. He is actually a big family guy, a real sweetheart, the kind you bring home to mother. Or maybe that's an image, too.
Yes, he's Italian!guido

Mario loves life: beautiful women, great pasta, wine, partying, and he gets to ride cutting edge bikes for money and adulation. Grateful for his fame, he entertains the crowds with style, panache, humor.

Jealous?
that would be really fun for a while, but...Tig

...I'll take my life over his. I'm lucky enough to have a best friend who is also my wife and a loving family. Besides, I get to ride and race for FUN, not as a job.

Oh, you forgot to mention his love of clothes and shoes!

Ciao
What's he holding there in his right hand? (nm)cory

The worst i have seen in a while. Maybe the worst. I'm surprised Castelli would want their symbol on that. In general i like Mario's added color to the sport, but that kit is just plain bad and ridiculous. If i rode for those guys i think i would pay a fine to wear something else so i wouldn't get laughed at. Let's hope it is a big Mario joke!!!
But, you have noticed it...O

When he starts trouncing people in the Giro, or even winning Milan san remo, many watching around the world will notice the outfit and thus the sponsors' names.
now i know why he is one of the fastest men in the world nmnaf geezer

the pic says it's the uh......."new E5 Specialized." so yeah...the top tube looks funky shaped. like a round to rectangular...'course, the chainstays look rectangular, too, so it's probably just the pic. or my lack of glasses.

Jan 9, 2002 1:48 AM
oh d'oh. Still looks like an m4sl with that sloping tube - what could possibly be improved on a bike like that anyway?

the top tube also goes rectangular by the headtube in my bike, if thats what you mean.

I like the kit. I could live without the shorts but I think the jersey's kind of cool. The bike on the other hand .....

But then I like Mapei's designs too and no one else seems to like them. Ah, it's so lonely in my world :-(
Finally - A trend setter!!Kristin
Jan 9, 2002 7:55 AM
Trend setters are and few between in the cycling world...this is such a conformists sport! You guys don't get it. The cycling motiff is getting old and tired. This is the next gen in roadie fashion. Just wait...18 months tops and 50% of you will be wearing something similar!
My vote for ugliest kitMcAndrus
Jan 9, 2002 6:22 AM
As long as we're talking ugly, take a look at Panaria's jersey.

Whenever I see pictures of this team, I have to blink.
i vote the whole current lot of jersey's as ugly.naf geezer
Jan 9, 2002 6:30 AM
they are all as bad as each other.

Im almost used to him in that type of flamboyant getup! It would be better with black shorts. So whats it gonna be "Specialized - Best Bike eh?!" I bet hes wishin he could be on a fine italian steed though- not that he would admit it in defiance of his sponsors though...
I don't know, he had a lot of wins on his American madePack Meat
