    Because their yellow jersey's would clash with the Maillot Jaune.

    The Tour directors let ONCE wear yellow for the time trials but insist on some other color for the other stages so no one would mistake an ONCE jersey for THE yellow jersey. ONCE picks pink but there have been other teams that have had alternate colors.
