Jersey is an island measuring 118.2 square km, including reclaimed land and intertidal zone. It lies in the English Channel, approximately 22.5 km from France, and approximately 161 km south of England. It is the largest and southernmost of the Channel Islands.

No, no, no... not that "jersey". Now I have a vogue of collecting the World Cup/Champion (WC) cross-country mountain bike jerseys.

This is my list, as at 18 May 2008:

1. Julien Absalon, Orbea WC, 2007.
2. Gunn-Rita Dhale, Merida WC, 2005 & 2006. [Got it on 19 May 2008, picture to come soon]
3. Julien Absalon, Bianchi WC, 2006.

These are the samples, they might not be exactly the same, depending on the sponsors at that time. However, they all have the UCI World Champion stripes/mountain in the middle of the jersey or UCI World Champion stripes somewhere around the jersey. Cool...
