Saeco in black and white

From the official Tour site.

11 H 22 - Saeco Can Expect A Large Fine Tonight The Saeco team did ask the race organizers if they could change their outfits from the traditional red to the white which they are wearing today but the team was told that would not be allowed. That hasn't stopped them from insisting with their curious marketing antics and Jean-Francois Pescheux, the competition director, has explained that the team will be given a large fine at the end of today's stage.

They're promoting their bike sponsor, Cannondale, in special jerseys that say "Legalize my Cannondale." Saeco's Gilberto Simoni is riding a prototype bike that comes in .1 kg below the UCI minimum requirements of 6.8 kg.

I don't really understand that. If it is .1kg too much, cant he just
add a little to it like change the seat with one that weighs just a tad
bit more?
