Need Old rider jersey

Seriously, if there is a special white jersey for best young rider under 25, then why not have a jersey for best rider over 35. Seems appropriate to make it a grey jersey. Wouldn't it have been fun to have Armstrong, Moreau, and Horner battling it out?

The white jersey is supposed to mean "Get a load of this dude - he might do something big in this race in a few years! Well done, kiddo!"

The old guy jersey would mean "haha retire already". It would be pretty condescending no matter what the true intention was.

They talked about this on Eurosport UK. I think the grey may have been Jens! idea.
