The four leader jerseys of the Tour de France will have a new look for the 2018 edition of the race. The new design is a celebration of the past of the race.

The design of the jerseys is inspired by the mythical combination jersey that made its first appearance in 1968 and was used until 1989. This jersey used to be granted to the best all-rounder rider.

The jerseys will have the Mondrian-style pattern that was used in the combination jersey for four years between 1985 and 1989. Following the design, each jersey will have squares with different shades of their main colours: Yellow for the overall classification, green for the points classification, Polka Dot for the King of the Mountains and white for the best young rider.

These new jerseys were designed in the workshops of Romilly-sur-Seine by 'le coq sportif' and meet the technical requirements for cyclists.
