Jerseys of Le Tour: a spotter's guide
Also called the maillot jaune, the Tour de France yellow jersey is won by the rider who tops the general classification leaderboard at the end of the Tour. The most coveted item of clothing in professional cycling, it has been won by riders including Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome, Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck.
The green jersey is often considered the 'sprinter's jersey', and is awarded to the points classification leader, whilst the polka dot or King of the Mountains jersey goes to the rider with the most mountain points.
Finally, the plain white young riders jersey is awarded to the under-26 rider who has completed Le Tour de France in the least amount of time.
Predict and win
The new 'Jersey Predictor' game from TP ICAP L'Etape London gives cycling aficionados the chance to put their cycling knowledge to the test and win. Those also looking to test their legs can sign up for London's official Le Tour de France sportive which takes place on Sunday 23 September.
Starting from the Lee Valley VeloPark, the route takes riders out from the city into the stunning Essex countryside with distances from 70km to 185.5km. Cyclists can also see how they fare on three closed road sprint challenges against previous Tour de France champions and event ambassadors Chris Froome and Andy Schleck.
