For this 2018 edition, the four leader jerseys incorporate a reference to the past. Their design is inspired by a mythical Tour de France jersey – the combination jersey –, which made its first appearance in 1968. It rewarded the best all-rounder, the rider most at ease on every terrain. The Mondrianstyle pattern of the different leader jerseys first appeared on this jersey in 1985. It is this structure which creates the common theme of the visual construction of these four jerseys. So, the one for the leader of the general classification in 2018 comes in shades of yellow.
