Get ready to ride with the 2018 AMGEN Tour of California Limited Edition Jersey in black! Celebrate California and all it's glory with this unique and stylish jersey that will have you ready for the race!
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.
Cyclists who specialize in bursts of power and speed, or consistently finish near the top of each stage, have the best chance to wear the respected ”green jersey.” Riders can accumulate points at designated Sprint Lines throughout the course, as well as for finishing the stage in the top ten. “King of California” Peter Sagan (BORA-hansgrohe) will return this year to defend his 7th career California Green Jersey against the likes of world-famous sprinters Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) and Marcel Kittel (Team KATUSHA ALPECIN). Visit California has been a jersey partner since the race's inception in 2006.
This jersey recognizes the peloton's strongest climber each day – the rider who collects the most points at KOM/QOM locations on designated mountains and hills. Only the first three cyclists to reach the top on rated climbs receive points.
