This gobsmacking uniform sported by a Colombian women’s cycling team at a race in Italy is just one of the biggest design fails we’ve seen. The otherwise standard strip features a flesh-coloured section across the lower torso and upper legs, leaving the women to appear naked.

Okay, so whose bright/bad idea was this? It's so wrong in so many ways and should be scrapped for something more appropriate, what were they thinking. It's supposed to be about a race not about promoting sex which it seems is the idea behind this gem.

Just when you thought you have heard the last of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, he is back in the news.

What happens if he doesn't have all or any of it left? His income has gone down significantly since his disgraceful fall from the sport, so I'm wondering if he can declare bankruptcy in a case like this.

An arbitration panel ordered Lance Armstrong and Tailwind Sports Corp. to pay $10 million US in a fraud dispute with a promotions company for what it called an "unparalleled pageant of international perjury, fraud and conspiracy" that covered up his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Dallas-based SCA Promotions announced the 2-1 decision against the former cyclist when its lawyers said Monday they had asked Texas' 116th Civil District Court in Dallas to confirm the arbitration ruling, dated Feb. 4. The panel included a neutral chairman, who ruled in favor of SCA, and one person selected by each side.

SCA paid Armstrong and Tailwind, the since-dissolved team management company, about $12 million in bonuses during Armstrong's career, when he won seven Tour de France titles. Those victories were stripped after Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service teams were found to have used banned performance-enhancing drugs.
