Wiggle_Points_JerseyThe Points Jersey

Awarded to the most consistent finisher in the OVO Energy Tour of Britain, the 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 Points Jersey, which will have a new look in 2018.

 

 

 

Recent Winners: Alexander Kristoff (2017), Dylan Groenewegen (2016), Owain Doull (2015), Michal Kwiatkowski (2014) and Martin Elmiger (2013).

 

The SKODA King of the Mountains Jersey

Awarded to the best climber in the OVO Energy Tour of Britain, riders battle for points at 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: Lukasz Owsian (2017), Xandro Meurisse (2016), Peter Williams (2015), Mark McNally (2014) and Angel Madrazo (2013).

 

Eisberg_SprintsJerseyThe 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: Mark McNally (2017), Jasper Bovenhuis (2016), Peter Williams (2015), Sebastian Lander (2014) and Angel Madrazo (2013).
