Maybe it's the pink jerseys
In light of Paolo Savoldelli's win at the Giro d'Italia, the re-emergence of Bobby Julich once he joined CSC, and Santiago Botero's return to the top rank of EuroPros (winning this year's Tour de Romandie), VeloNews.com has an interesting analysis piece, "Why T-Mobile fails."
First off, there's almost no debate that, as a team, they do. Until Vinokourov finally broke through at Liege-Bastogne-Liege, the best-paid team on the planet had zero results to speak of for the season.
Moll chalks it up largely to the disconnect between T-Mobile's two leaders, Walter Godefroot and the strange two-headed beast of Mario Kummer, the team's directeur sportif, and former DS Rudy Pevenage, now Ullrich's dedicated coach.
Agree or disagree, it's an interesting read.

The Psychology of Color
Pink - is the most gender specific. Pink represents femininity and has a gentle nature (which is not a bad thing). Pink is associated with sweets like candy and bubble gum. It also symbolizes softness. Because it's so "feminine," use of pinks should be well planned. Pink and blue color combos are most associated with babies, soaps and detergents.
