Special jerseys in cycling are used to indicate the leaders of each race classification during the Santos Tour Down Under. Find out about each jersey below.
Santos Ochre Leader's Jersey
The Santos Ochre Jersey is awarded to the rider with the fastest cumulative time at the end of each stage - the leader of the 'general classification -, and the overall winner at the end of the race. Ochre is the colour of the iconic South Australian outback, and is unique among the general classification jerseys in the UCI WorldTour.
Most Santos Ochre Winner's jerseys: 2 - Amanda Spratt (2017-18)
Ziptrak Sprint Jersey
The Ziptrak Sprint jersey is awarded at the end of each stage, and the race, to the rider with the most number of points in the sprint classification. The sprint (or points) classification is determined by allocating points to riders at 'intermediate sprint' locations on each stage, as well as the finish of the race. The first three riders receive points towards the classification.
Most Ziptrak Sprint jerseys: Katrin Garfoot (2018, UniSA-Australia), Chloe Hosking (2017, Ale Cipollini), Lauretta Hanson (2017, RUSH Women's Team).
Subaru Queen of the Mountain Jersey
The Subaru Queen of the Mountain jersey is awarded at the end of each stage, and the race, to the rider who leads the cumulative Subaru Mountains Classification. Subaru Queen of the Mountains points are awarded at pre-determined summits along each stage. This jersey traditionally has a polka dot pattern, which started in the Tour de France in 1975 and has been adopted by other races around the world. The Subaru Queen of the Mountain jersey has navy blue polka dots.
Most Subaru Queen of the Mountain jerseys: Amanda Spratt (2018, Mitchelton-SCOTT), Janneke Ensing (2017, Ale Cipollini), Danielle King (2016, Wiggle-High5).
