The TDF will experiment this season with a different concept for the attribution of intermediate bonus seconds
: there will be present only at stages one to nine
-except for the Cholet TTT-. 10-6-4" will be up for grabs at every finish -
plus, a bonus sprint
(diverse from the intermediate sprints, only counting for the green jersey; it will be clearly differentiated at the profiles, with a yellow icon), always close to the end of the stage, will offer 3-2-1"
to the top three over the line. There won't be any intermediate bonuses after the first rest day; only the finish ones.
We take advantage of this section to offer some additional links, which cover the stage categories
and the three rankings depending on those: the green points jersey,
the polka dot KOM jersey
and the outside time limits
(missing in the latter: 25% for the ITT, 30% for the TTT
). Riders aiming at the white jersey
of best young rider must have been born after 1st January 1993
. Lastly, the team time trial
will seen times for all teams registered when the fourth
rider from each squad crosses the finish.
