Leader Jerseys of the Deutschland Tour

The 132 pro riders of the Deutschland Tour will fight for four leader jerseys. In addition to the leader in the overall rankings, sprint and mountain rankings will be carried out on the four stages as well as the best young rider sought.

Battle for the jerseys


The leader’s jersey of the Deutschland Tour will present a very special surprise. It becomes the Hall of  Fame for the Tour’s fans, as it carries the names of the thousands of fans who have helped to plan and put on the Deutschland Tour. The best rider has the honor of representing the fans and the unique co-operative concept of „Deutschland. Deine Tour.”

The four leader jerseys were developed and produced by Santini Cycling Wear. The jerseys, with the modern, fitted cut and very light breathable material, meet perfectly the high standards of the pros for summer racing wear.

The red jersey with the names of the fans (overall leader jersey)


In bright red, one of the colors of the Deutschland Tour, the jersey of the overall leader will stand out in the peloton. Like last year, thousands of fan names will be on the leader’s jersey. These fans have helped develop the Deutschland Tour with their ideas, suggestions and tips. The corresponding hash tag #DeineTour on the sleeves, the logo of the Deutschland Tour on the shoulders and the Santini logo on the chest complete the “fan” jersey.

 

ŠKODA presents the green jersey (sprint jersey)


Every day at the Deutschland Tour there are two intermediate sprints and at the stage finish more valuable points for the green jersey are awarded. Sprinter or a Classics-oriented stage chaser – the list of possible winners of the green jersey is a long one. As in the big stage races, from the Tour de France to the Vuelta a Espana, the green jersey at the Deutschland Tour will be presented by ŠKODA.

 

Plan International presents the blue jersey (mountain jersey)


The jersey for the best climber shines in blue this year and is presented by the official charity partner of the Deutschland Tour Plan International.  Climbing specialists and break groups will deliver a duel for points at the 9 ranked climbs. The ascent up to the winter sports ressort Oberhof on the last stage runs up to 800 meters -- the highest point of the Deutschland Tour.

Dauner presents the white jersey (best young rider jersey)


Riders born after January 1, 1994, will fight to be named the best young rider. The best placed rider in the general classification in this age group will be awarded with the white jersey. The ranking for the best young pro is presented by Dauner in an innovative refreshing design. The water producer is at home in Daun and gets its water from the natural mineral springs of the Vulkan Eifel. The highly-mineralized water is ideal for athletes and active persons.

Special collection for the fans of the Deutschland Tour

The Deutschland Tour merchandise collection and the replica leader jerseys will be available for purchase right on time for the start of the Deutschland Tour on August, 29, at leading cycling stores and on santinisms.it.

In addition to the pro riders, the Italian firm is also providing free jerseys to the participants in the Jedermann Tour on September, 1st, in Erfurt. Santini has also developed a special collection including jersey, bibshorts and accessories in the Deutschland Tour design - inspired by Hanover, the host city of the first stage.
