Returning race partner TAG Heuer has commissioned world-renowned street artist Alec Monopoly to design this coveted “Punk Is Dead” jersey for the second year running, which will be awarded daily to the rider under age 25 with the least amount of elapsed time over the entire race to that point. Wearers of this jersey are cycling stars in the making.
The prized “yellow jersey” will go to the rider with the lowest cumulative time over the entire race (each day) at the end of each stage. Traditionally yellow, this jersey often changes hands from stage to stage as each day's results are added into the equation. It is possible for a rider to wear this highly contested jersey without winning a stage since it recognizes overall race times, not stage finish results.
