This just popped in my head....

Would you rather win a stage, or have the pink jersey for 1 day? I think I'd rather win a stage.

id rather the "maglio rosa" ....Spirito

The leaders jerseys have a way of occasionally falling in the lap of riders who've done nothing spectacular (well, not that i could ride a grand tour to begin with, but that aside...). I'd rather have one amazing firecracker stage win in the mountains than do like Francois Simon in last year's tour -- he happened to be in the lucky break, and happened to be the only one in that break that could somewhat climb, so he spent two or three mountain days getting dropped by the big guns while wearing jaune.
another vote for stage win. nmweiwentg

The pink jersey. I'd never have to buy a beer in Italy again!

Since I'm not Italian, I'll take a stage win.

... I'd also want the pink jersey.

But what I'd really sell my soul for would be that awesome red white & green national champion's jersey. (I own a replica, but it's just not the same.)

BTW, could somebody please tell Mapei to take that ugly tumbling cubes design off the red portion?
