THE WHITE JERSEY

This jersey was created in 1975. In 1988, the jersey was removed (but not the classification for the best young rider).

The white jersey then reappeared in the peleton in 2000. It rewards the best-placed rider under the age of 25. It has revealed future cycling talents: Denis Menchov in 2003, Alberto Contador in 2007, Andy Schleck from 2008 to 2010, Pierre Rolland in 2012...
