RulesEdit

  • Helmets are obligatory for all stages.

Yellow JerseyEdit

It rewards the overall leader, adding the times achieved on each step. In case of equal time in the general classification, the hundredths of a second recorded by the timekeepers at the time trial "individual" are reintroduced into the total time to separate athletes and decide the attribution of the Yellow jersey.

Points ClassificationEdit

The points classification is based on the following scale :

  • Arrival on a flat stage : 35, 30, 26, 24, 22, 20, 19, ... 1 point for the 25th ranked rider.
  • Arrivals on a medium mountain stage: 25, 22, 20, 18, 16, 15, ... 1 point for the 20th ranked rider.
  • Arrival on a mountain stage : 20, 17, 15, 13, 12, 10, 9, ... 1 point for the 15th ranked rider.
  • Arrivals on an individual time-trial: 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point to the first 10 finishers.
  • Sprints (two or three by stage): 6, 4 and 2 points in the first 3.

Mountain ClassificationEdit

The classification of the mountain is based on the following scale :

  • Climb off-categorized : 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 7, 6 and 5 points for the first 10 finishers.
  • Climb of 1st category : 15, 13, 11, 9, 8, 7, 6 and 5 points for top 8 finishers.
  • Climb of 2nd category : 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 and 5 points for the first 6 riders.
