SO MUCH WIN
Jerseys of the Giro:
Pink: the most famous one, the maglia rosa, it is awarded to the rider with the shortest overall time for all the stages added together. As such, they have covered the course faster than anyone else. It is pink because the race has always been organised by newspaper La Gazzetta Dello Sport which is printed on bright pink paper. It is sponsored by Balocco, a biscuit maker.
Blue: the mountains jersey. It was green in the past but is now blue, the maglia azzurra. It is sponsored by Banca Mediolanum, a bank.
Red: the points competition. Riders pick up points at the intermediate sprints during a stage and at the finish line. Points are awarded at an intermediate spring and the finish line. It is sponsored by Italo, a train operator.
White: for the best young rider, this is awarded on the same basis as the pink jersey, except the rider must be born after 1 January 1988, ie aged 25 or under. It is sponsored by Fratelli Orsero, a fruit distributor.
