Tour of Britain Jerseys

Within the OVO Energy Tour of Britain there are four leaders’ jerseys, each presented following every stage to the rider leading that competition’s classification. In 2017 this is headed by the leader’s green jersey, which this year gets a makeover to reflect our title partnership with OVO Energy.

The OVO Energy Green Jersey

Awarded to the rider leading The OVO Energy Tour of Britain overall, the Green Jersey is what every rider in The Tour seeks to pull on. The Green Jersey is easily identifiable in the peloton, showing you who is currently leading The OVO Energy Tour of Britain.

Recent Winners: Steve Cummings, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Dylan Van Baarle and Sir Bradley Wiggins

The Wiggle Points Jersey

Awarded to the most consistent finisher in the OVO Energy Tour of Britain, the Wiggle Points Jersey is Britain’s equivalent of the Tour de France’s green jersey.

The first 15 riders across the finish line are awarded points on a 15 down to 1 basis, with the rider who has accumulated the most points so far wearing the blue and white jersey, sponsored by Wiggle, the online cycling retailer.

Recent Winners: Dylan Groenewegen, Owain Doull, Michal Kwiatkowski and Martin Elmiger

The SKODA King of the Mountains Jersey

Awarded to the best climber in the OVO Energy Tour of Britain, riders battle for points at three or four designated SKODA King of the Mountains climbs on every road stage of The Tour.

Ranked in one of three categories according to their difficulty, the first riders across the summit win points with the rider who has accumulated the most points wearing the SKODA King of the Mountains jersey.

Recent Winners: Xandro Meurisse, Peter Williams, Mark McNally and Angel Madrazo

The Eisberg Sprints Jersey

Each road stage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain features three intermediate Sprints, where points are awarded towards the Eisberg Sprints Jersey.

Highly popular with fans, riders battle it out to be first across the sprint line to claim points, and also bonus seconds to be taken off their overall race time.

If the overall lead for the OVO Energy Tour of Britain is tight, expect the battle for the time bonuses to be intense, just as in 2007 when an intermediate sprint helped decide who won The Tour overall.

Recent Winners: Jasper Bovenhuis, Peter Williams, Sebastian Lander, Angel Madrazo

All of the leader jerseys for the OVO Energy Tour of Britain are produced by Official Partners Dare2b. Check back later in 2017 to find out how you can get your hands on one of the designs, plus other items of OVO Energy Tour of Britain Official Merchandise.
