Jerseys

Tour of Britain jerseys

Within the Tour of Britain there are four leaders’ jerseys, each presented following every stage to the rider leading that competition’s classification.

Within the Tour of Britain there are four leaders’ jerseys, each presented following every stage to the rider leading that competition’s classification.

All of our 2019 leaders’ jerseys are designed and manufactured by London-based Le Col, are once again made with 100% recycled fabric, which was a first for any professional bike race when they launched their 2018 range.

This unique and important step correlates with race organiser SweetSpot’s continued aim of making their races more environmentally sustainable.

Leader’s jersey

Awarded to the rider leading the Tour of Britain overall, the leader’s jersey is what every rider in the Tour seeks to pull on. The jersey is easily identifiable in the peloton, showing fans who is currently leading the Tour of Britain.

It 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!

Eisberg sprints jersey

Each road stage of the 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 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.
