Bad enough seeing some of the supporters' attempts to fit into a player quality replica rugby shirt, without introducing full on MAMIL into the equation.

I'm not against them by the way, just keep them on the bike/road :smt005
Clearly you've not seen half the MAMILs cycling around Leicestershire, a beer enhanced stomach certainly does not hinder their ability to wear a technical cycling jersey especially a Team Sky one.

Come on Tigers make it happen, several former players of note are supposed to enjoy cycling as well.
Don’t get me wrong, at least they’re making the effort, but when I see a fat lad on an expensive lightweight bike, I can’t help thinking they could lose a couple of pounds and save a grand on a cheaper bike.

And yes, the away shirt design would make a great cycling shirt
Oy! I could take that personally...

Well if you are going to struggle up hills you might as well struggle on the bike that makes it easiest for you (that you can reasonably afford). I really need to upgrade to either all carbon or titanium.

I tweeted the club a few weeks back on this, no response.

Foska.com do a Harlequins cycling jersey so not beyond the realms of possibility for Tigers.

Wish I had the figure to get away with wearing a cycling shirt. If they launch a range, maybe I can use it as an incentive to lose a few grams!

The only use for a cycling "top" is seeing how long it can suspend a cyclist's weight whilst stuck in a Hawthorn hedge.
