2017 Classification Jerseys
Visit our store to purchase the jersey's for this year's race!
Amgen Leader Jersey
The prized "yellow jersey" will go to the rider with the lowest cumulative time over the entire race (each day) at the end of each stage. Traditionally yellow, this jersey often changes hands from stage to stage as each day's results are added into the equation. It is possible for a rider to wear this highly contested jersey without winning a stage since it recognizes overall race times, not stage finish results.
Visit California Sprint Jersey
Cyclists who specialize in bursts of power and speed, or consistently finish near the top of each stage, have the best chance to wear the respected "green jersey." Riders can accumulate points at designated Sprint Lines throughout the course, as well as for finishing the stage in the top ten. Visit California has been a jersey partner since the race's inception in 2006.
Lexus King (KOM) & Queen (QOM) of the Mountain Jersey
This jersey recognizes the peloton's strongest climber each day – the rider who collects the most points at KOM/QOM locations on designated mountains and hills. Only the first three cyclists to reach the top on rated climbs receive points.
Breakaway from Cancer® / Breakaway from Heart DiseaseTM Most Courageous Rider Jersey
This meaningful jersey will be awarded daily to the man / woman respectively who best exemplifies the character of those engaged in the fight against cancer / heart disease – courage, sacrifice, inspiration, determination and perseverance.
TAG Heuer Best Young Rider Jersey
New race partner TAG Heuer has commissioned world-renowned street artist Alec Monopoly to design this special jersey, which will be awarded daily to the rider under age 25 with the least amount of elapsed time over the entire race to that point. Recipients of this jersey are best bets to become future cycling stars.
