About that jersey presentation...

The sprinters jersey at the Tour de Georgia is blue.

The best young riders jersey at the Tour de Georgia is green.

I had this backwards, but so have the organizers (you could argue the jersey designer had it backwards). It wasn't until today that the jerseys were correctly awarded.

Stage 1

  • Actual: Ivan Dominguez Overall/Sprint, Sanderson Young Rider
  • Awarded: Ivan Dominguez Overall, Sanderson Young/Sprint -- the sprint jersey was given to Sanderson based on the fact that he would be wearing it for Dominguez the next day

I assumed they were taking the iron-on off Sanderson's green jersey, when in fact they were trying to get it to stick on.

Stage 3:

  • Actual: Henderson Overall/Sprint, Farrar Young Rider
