Team competition (Tour de France)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yellow number on the back

The team classification of the Tour de France is since the year 1930 performed.

For the team ranking, the times of the three best placed drivers per team of a stage are added up. As soon as a team brings fewer than three drivers to the start of a stage, it is automatically deleted from the rating, as it can no longer be rated. To get the overall result, the times of each stage are added up.

The team receives € 50,000 for overall victory in the team competition.

Until 1990, the leading team could be recognized by their yellow cycling caps. The best team has been wearing yellow numbers since 2006. From 2012 there is also the right - but not the obligation - to wear yellow helmets as an award.

By the year 1961 the riders went on national teams in since 1962 then sponsored teams . Record winners in the national teams are Belgium and France with ten wins each. In the sponsored teams, Mercier is with five wins ahead of the German T-Mobile team , KAS and Movistar , which have won four. T-Mobile is the only team to have three wins in a row.
