Welcome to my Brickheadz creation of Tour de France winners jerseys.
The race was first held in
1903, organised by L’Auto newspaper to boost sales. The race has been held
annually ever since.
The Brickheadz figures I
have created recognise the 4 main jerseys worn throughout the event and are
awarded for various categories.
The iconic ‘Maillot Jaune’
or Yellow Jersey (chosen for the colour paper used to print L’Auto) is awarded
to the leader of the General Classification, the single rider with the lowest aggregate
The Polka Dot Jersey is awarded
to the ‘King of the Mountains’, where riders are awarded points for the top
placings on a climb with the highest points scorer winning the jersey.
The Green Jersey or ‘Maillot
Vert’ is awarded to the leader of the points' classification which is very often
won by a sprinter as they are likely winners of stages as well as intermediate
sprints during a stage.
The White Jersey is awarded
to the best young rider (those under 26 years of age) and is again awarded to the rider with the lowest aggregate time.
