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 fans who is currently leading the OVO Energy Tour of Britain.

The Green Jersey is worn by the rider who has completed all stages up to that point in the shortest time possible – and not the person who has won the most!

Wahoo 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 each day’s finish line (excluding the Stage Five team time trial) are awarded points on a 15 down to one basis, with the rider who has accumulated the most points so far wearing the Wahoo Points Jersey, which will have a new look in 2018.

Eisberg_SprintsJerseyEisberg Sprints Jersey

Each road stage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain features three intermediate Sprints, where points (three, two and one for the first three riders across the line) 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 (three, two and one) 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.

Previous winners: 2018 Alex Paton (GBr) 2017 Mark McNally (GBr), 2016 Jasper Bovenhuis (Ned), 2015 Peter Williams (GBr), 2014 Sebastian Lander (Den), 2013 Angel Madrazo (Spa), 2012 Peter Williams (GBr), 2011 Pieter Ghyllebert (Bel), 2010 Michal Golas (Pol), 2009 Thomas De Gendt (Bel), 2008 Edvald Boasson Hagen (Nor), 2007 Mark Cavendish (GBr), 2006 Johan Van Summeren (Bel), 2005 Eric Baumann (Ger), 2004 Rodney Green (RSA).
