Young Rider Tour de France 2020
Tour de France 2020 will be the 107th edition of the Tour de France that is considered one of the cycling's three Grand Tours. However, Tour de France usually runs several secondary competitions, and young rider classification is one of them, which began in nearly 1975. This year is going to be held as the 46th event of the competition.
Except for years 1989 to 1999, a white jersey that is recognized by maillot blanc in french, is worn by the young rider classification leader. Over the years, the requirements to be suitable for young rider classification have been updated. But it has always been the case that experienced cyclists could not be eligible, sometimes by rejecting cyclists above a certain age, cyclists who had earlier enrolled the Tour de France, or those cyclists who have over two years of professional experience. With the most recent years, only cyclists under 26 years are qualified in this young rider classification competition.
The classification leader is discovered in the same way as the general classification does, with the times of the riders added up after each stage, and the leader is entitled to the eligible rider with the lowest aggregate time.
Egan Bernal is the most recent winner of this secondary competition in the Tour de France. He is originally a Colombian cyclist currently riding for UCI WorldTeam Team Ineos. He becomes the first Latin American winner of the race through winning the 2019 Tour de France, beating David Gaudu (Groupama – FDJ) and Enric Mas (Deceuninck – Quick-Step).
