What does the Tour de France jersey mean?
In the course of the Tour de France, riders will receive many jerseys for different achievements. There are four main jerseys: yellow, polka dot, green and white.
In the history of the Tour de France, Eddy Merckx is the only rider to win three jerseys in a single race. He brings home the yellow, polka dot and green jerseys.
The most famous jersey is maillot jaune, which is worn by the rider with the shortest total time before the start of the stage. Under normal circumstances, cyclists will win a stage, but this does not mean that they will wear a yellow jersey to leave that day, because it is based on the overall results of the game. The cyclist wearing it at the end of the Tour de France is considered the winner.
Polka dot sweater
The polka dot jersey, also known as maillot a pois rouge, is awarded to riders who are considered the king of the mountains. Different mountains are graded according to their difficulty, and the first person to climb the mountain will get a certain number of points. The cyclist with the highest score will receive a polka dot jersey. Richard Virenque (Richard Virenque) is the person who has won the most jerseys. He won it for four consecutive years from the 1994-97 season and 1999, 2003 and 2004.
Maillot vert is a jersey for sprinters, given to drivers who are leading in the points classification. Points are obtained based on the position at the end of the stage and the intermediate sprint, and the flat stage has the highest score. First place in the tie stage scores 50 points, hill or Zhongshan scores 30 points, mountain, time trial and intermediate sprint each score 20 points. The top 15 people in each stage will receive points. Pater Sagan won the championship with the most green shirts with seven victories.
Riders earn maillot blanc by becoming the best young cyclist, that is, anyone under the age of 26 on January 1st of the second year after the tour. Andy Schleck and Jan Ullrich have won three white jersey titles, and last year’s Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar was 21 years old. (Although he turned 22 the day after winning) He won both white and yellow jerseys, becoming the youngest Tour de France champion since World War II.
Many other jerseys will appear during the game. The cyclist wearing a rainbow jersey is the defending champion, and the rider who was rated as the most aggressive the day before will use white on a red background instead of the typical white on black. Multiple drivers can wear a black number on a yellow background, which means a team with the fastest three drivers, but they can also choose a yellow helmet.
If some drivers win a national championship in a country recognized by UCI, they will also wear their own jerseys.
Tour de France record
There are many records in the 107-year history of the Tour de France, and Merck is the holder of many records.

Mark Cavendish does have a chance to break the stage victory record because he is currently 30 years old and will participate in the 2021 Tour de France, although he has not won the stage title there since 2016.
Sylvain Chavanel played the most games at the age of 18, tied with Joop Zoetemelk 16 times.
