What do the Tour de France jerseys mean?

There are four jerseys given to riders during the Tour de France, marking overall leaders and winners of certain classifications.

Yellow jersey

The yellow jersey is worn by the aggregate time leader at the beginning of a stage. For example, if one rider has the best time through three stages, he will wear the yellow jersey for the fourth stage. That means the winner of the Tour de France after all 21 stages always receives the yellow jersey, or the maillot jaune.

Polka dot jersey

The polka dot jersey is awarded to the rider who performs the best on the race’s grueling climbs. Known as “King of the Mountains,” the rider receives the jersey based on finishing with the highest number of points assigned from mountaintop checkpoints.

Green jersey

The green jersey is awarded to points classification winners. It’s considered the sprinter’s jersey, as more points are awarded in this case for flat stages. The winner of a flat stage will receive 50 points, whereas the winner of a “hilly” stage receives 30 and the winner of a “high mountain” stage receives 20. The top 15 finishers are traditionally awarded points, and points also can be accumulated during intermediate sprints in the middle of stages.

White jersey

The white jersey is awarded to the best finisher among riders aged 25 or younger. That means riders can win both the white jersey and the yellow jersey, and that’s exactly what Tadej Pogacar did in both 2020 and 2021.
