Awarded to the race’s best sprinter, the Chain Reaction Cycles Points Jersey is The Women’s Tour’s equivalent of the Tour de France’s green jersey.

The first 15 riders across the finish line are awarded points on a 15 down to 1 basis, with the rider who has accumulated the most points so far wearing the predominantly blue and white jersey.

Each day the most aggressive rider will be rewarded with the Combativity Award, with a special version of the same award being presented following the final stage to the rider who has most animated the 2017 Women’s Tour across all five stages.
