cannondale-drapac is similar to the points this year. or is it only yellow that matters?
The only reason yellow matters is the sponsors being unhappy with criticism. Teams are only allowed to ride in alternative colours for one race a year, so why would they want to ride the most famous race not in their usual kit, just to avoid conflicting with a minor jersey colour? A better solution would be to make the minor jerseys more distinctive, like the mountains at the Tour and Vuelta.
i was thinking that the tour would make them change whether they liked it or not. the green isn't what i'd call minor.
