Jersey green.svg

In road bicycle racing, and in the Grand Tour stage races in particular, the Green jersey is the name given to a distinctive racing jersey worn by the leader in a subsidiary competition.

For example, while the overall race leader in the Tour de France will wear the yellow jersey, or "maillot jaune", the green jersey ("maillot vert") will be worn by the leader in the points competition.

In the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España however, the green jersey is worn by the King of the Mountains, the leader in the competition for climbing specialists.
