VeloNews | Postal fined for illegal jerseys

Check the footage for the gray USPS jerseys. The official Tour website reports that the gray jerseys "are the same as the original colors of the US Postal Service". The team was fined 4500 Swiss francs (about $3350), and each rider 200 Swiss francs (about $148.50).

Armstrong's purse for the Tour win was 400,000 euros (about $459,500).
