Lance Armstrong & Team Radioshack Could Not Ride in Black

Today, on the last stage of Tour de France 2010, Lance Armstrong and Team Radioshack were forced to take off their black Livestrong themed jerseys, all with the number “28“, which represented the 28 million people world wride who have cancer.

The Tour’s officials demanded that Team Radioshack changed from the black 28 jersey to their usual red and grey jersey, and assigned rider numbers, and this meant that the start of the last stage had to be delayed significantly.

Should Team Radioshack have been allowed to ride in their Black “28″ jersey, or were the race officials right in demanding that the race rules were “obeyed”?
