The Zwift Young Rider's jersey is awarded at the end of each stage, and the race, to the rider under 23 years of age with the best cumulative time in the race. The Youth Classification leader and winner traditionally wears a white-coloured jersey in world cycling, and the Santos Tour Down Under also maintains this tradition.
