Dag Otto Lauritzen finished his professional career with TVM and this jersey is from his final season with them. I also have a nice example of the Peugeot/Shell team jersey that he would have raced in during part of the the 1984 season.
He now works for Norwegian TV station TV 2 covering races like the Tour de France and is also very active on twitter as @TV2DagO2. He was the first Norwegian to win a stage in the race in 1987 before the likes of Thor Hushovd, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Alexander Kristoff and Kurt-Asle Arvesen.
The photograph of the jersey was kindly sent to me by John Pierce who has covered the Tour de France over 40 times as a photo journalist!
