Larry H. Miller Dealerships
The origins of the Yellow Jersey go back to the first sponsor of the Tour de France, L’Auto, a daily newspaper printed on yellow paper. The yellow jersey is awarded at the end of each stage to the rider with the best general classification time (not necessarily the Stage winner) and to distinguish the overall race leader.
The sprint competition adds a level of excitement to the race; it is often called a “race within a race.” Sprint points are awarded at designated sprint lines on a course and awarded at the stage finish. The rider with the most sprint points is awarded and retains the jersey until he is no longer the point leader in the sprint competition.
King Of The Mountains (Kom)
The Tour of Utah has some of the most intense climbing terrain in North America. The King-of-the-Mountains Jersey is awarded to the rider who accumulates the most points by being among the first three riders crossing KOM check-points at the top of all significant climbs throughout the course.
Best Young Rider
ntended to reward and encourage the young lions of cycling, the Best Young Rider jersey competition is for all participants under the age of twenty-three. The best young rider jersey is awarded to the rider in this age category with the lowest cumulative time.
Most Aggressive Rider
Each day, the most determined rider will earn the Most Aggressive Rider jersey. It may be on a climb, on a break, following a crash or a severe mechanical. In any case, it will be awarded to a cyclist who demonstrates–in the face of all adversity–the greatest desire to win in that day’s stage.
