A friend brought this up whilst watching yesterday's race. How is it that Camel can have their name on their riders leathers and on the bikes but Marlboro cannot?

Camels are actually healthy for you...lowers cholesterol keeps weight off lowers risk of cancer/heart disease and ....OK I've got no idea.

umm, they can. It's a regional regulation about tobacco advertising.

that's why sometimes they do: (tokyo)



and sometimes they don't: (us)



(iirc, US/Some EU/MidEast don't allow it, while asia does. however, EU is also uniformly banning it and is the reason that camel isn't the yama sponsor next year)

I think some countries allow, some ban, and some allow a ciggy company a certain number of sports/events at which they can advertise.

I think that kind of sucks. Smoke if you wanna smoke, chew if you wanna chew.... Just like American rodeo.. smokeless tobacco is banned in most arena's.... it's just silly.
