Within the OVO Energy Women’s Tour there are five leaders’ jerseys, each presented following every stage to the rider leading that competition’s classification.

The five jerseys on offer in the race ensure that glory is spread out among the best all-rounder, climber, sprinter, most consistent daily finisher and – rather fittingly in this country’s most prestigious stage race – the leading Briton.

The OVO Energy Green Jersey

Awarded to the rider leading The OVO Energy Women’s Tour overall, the Green Jersey is what every rider in The Tour seeks to pull on. The Green Jersey is easily identifiable in the peloton, and is worn by the rider who has completed the previous stages up to that point in the shortest cumulative time.

Previous winners: 2018: Coryn Rivera, Team Sunweb 2017: Kasia Niewiadoma, WM3 Pro Cycling 2016: Lizzie Deignan, Boels Dolmans 2015: Lisa Brennauer, Velocio SRAM 2014: Marianne Vos, Rabo Liv

 

The Breast Cancer Care Points Jersey

Awarded to the race’s best sprinter, the Breast Cancer Care Points Jersey is the OVO Energy Women’s Tour’s equivalent of the Tour de France’s green jersey.

Riders will battle for bonus points at the stage finish each day. 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 Breast Cancer Care Points jersey.

Previous winners: 2018: Marianne Vos, WaowDeals Pro Cycling 2017: Christine Majerus, Boels Dolmans 2016: Marinanne Vos, Rabo Liv 2015: Lisa Brennauer, Velocio SRAM 2014: Marianne Vos, Rabo Liv

 

SKODA Queen of the Mountains Jersey

Awarded to the best climber in the OVO Energy Women’s Tour, riders battle for points at the designated SKODA Queen of the Mountains climbs (typically two) on each stage of the race. Points on offer depend on the severity of the climbs: category one ascents (the hardest) will award points on a 10 down to 1 basis. Category two climbs offer six points down to one, category three have four points down to one on offer. The rider who has accumulated the most points after each stage will wear the SKODA Queen of the Mountains jersey.

Previous winners: 2018: Elisa Longo Borghini, Wiggle HIGH5 2017: Audrey Cordon Ragot, Wiggle HIGH5 2016: Katie Hall, UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling 2015: Melissa Hoskins, Orica AIS 2014: Sharon Laws, UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling

 

Eisberg Sprints Jersey

Our Eisberg Sprints Classification Jersey was introduced in 2017, and dramatically saw Boels Dolmans rider Christine Majerus steal it from Jolien D’Hoore during our final stage in London! Each stage features two intermediate Sprints, where three, two and one point are awarded to the leading trio of riders across the line.  Highly popular with fans, the Eisberg Sprints also offer bonus seconds (again of three, two and one), so if the overall lead for the OVO Energy Women’s Tour is tight, expect fierce battles here, too!

Previous winners: 2018: Coryn Rivera, Team Sunweb 2017: Christine Majerus, Boels Dolmans

 

 

Adnams Best British Rider Jersey

The Adnams Best British Rider Jersey will be awarded to the leading British rider on General Classification following each day’s stage. As well as creating a race within the race for the British riders keen to perform on home roads, it also allows spectators to easily pick out the leading Briton in the OVO Energy Women’s Tour.

Previous winners: 2017: Dani Rowe, WaowDeals Pro Cycling 2017: Hannah Barnes, Canyon//SRAM 2016: Lizzie Deignan, Boels Dolmans 2015: Hannah Barnes, UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling 2014: Lucy Garner, Great Britain

Non-Jersey Competitions

Teams and riders also compete in two further categories. WaowDeals Pro Cycling followed in the wheeltracks of most recent winners Team Sunweb (2017) and Wiggle HIGH5 (2016) by winning the OVO Energy Women’s Tour Team Classification. This prize is calculated by adding up the combined times of each team’s three highest-placed riders on general classification.

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 the judges decide has most animated the 2018 OVO Energy Women’s Tour across all five stages.

BTC City Ljubljana’s Maaike Boogaard claimed the 2018 award, following in the footsteps of 2017 winner Lucinda Brand (Team Sunweb).
