Points Classification Tour De France 2020

The Tour de France is one of the most prestigious and challenging multi-stage bicycle races in the world and is mostly held in France every year, but also runs periodically through nearby countries. This event involves a method of point classification that is likely a tradition of the Tour de France. This is originally a secondary competition, which started in 1953.

Points are awarded for high finishes, and intermediate sprints for winning in a stage, and they are shown in a point classification. It's ranked as one of the sprinter's important competitions. A green jersey, regarded in French as a maillot vert, implies the leader, which has become a metonym for the points-classification competition.

This strategy has encouraged many other cycling races; the other two Grand Tours have included the points classifications: the Vuelta a España since 1955, also utilizing the Green Jersey, and the Giro d'Italia since 1966.

Recent Points classification

By applying the points collected in the stage and subtracting penalty points, the points classification is determined by 2019. Points are awarded to first riders for reaching the finish line or intermediate sprint line, and to the riders covering with the best time in the prologue or individual time trials. Here is the recent points classification:

Riders can simply miss their points for different violations of the rules, which ensures that some riders end the tour with a total of negative points. The organization decides before the inauguration of the Tour de France which stages are classified to be the flat, medium mountain, or high mountain. Flat stages normally have few to no categorized climbs, especially few in the 4th category and one in the occasional 3rd category, medium mountain stages have various climbs, typically in the 2nd and 3rd category and high mountain stages have many large climbs, often in the 1st category or the hors category.

Once cyclists pass the line, it is critical to determine the order, or when cyclists score the same time in the prologue or individual time trial, the cyclists split the points up to the nearest one or two points. The leader in the point classification is awarded a green jersey after every stage. The rider with the most stage wins is the leader in the ranking through the event of a tie. When this is still a tie, the number of intermediate sprint winnings corresponds to the leader. At the end of the Tour de France, the rider who wins the points classification becomes the green jersey holder.
