Well we never expected such a response to the big question that affects every cyclist every time he rides, yes the SOCK question.
You have probably heard my comments on this subject (wear new white socks 6-9cm cuff,logo to match team kit ,or if Italian the bike or component choice)
Yes I am aware that some people have had moderate success while disobeying this rule but a quick check on this years tour shows that the only person to attempt to wear silly sock’s (David Miller in tall black socks ) was chased down and humiliated by a fashion conscious bunch.
Please some things are sacred the wearing of new white socks for road cycling is an essential part of our tradition we beg you to carry on this most serious aspect of elite riding, we have to distinguish between MTBers those of lesser intelligence or of poor washing powder choice that there is only one choice
The white choice
