Tour de France Combination

Classement du combiné



     The Tour de France started in 1903, and is one of the most viewed annual sporting events. The yellow jersey is awarded to the rider with the lowest aggregate time and is the most saught after jersey in cycling. The polka dot jersey is awarded to the King of the Mountains, who has collected the highest amount of points from the top of the Tour de France's mountains. The green jersey is awarded to the best sprinter, who has collected the highest amount of points from the sprints on the flat grounds throughout and at the end of a stage.

Combination and Intermediate Sprints Classifications
     Between 1968 and 1989 (excluding 1975-79, 1983 and 1984) there was a combination classification, which was given to the person who was highest ranked in all other competitions combined. In the later years the winner of this wore a yellow/polka dot/green/white/red jersey. From 1973 this also included the intermediate sprints classification, where points were awarded from sprints throughout a stage, but not at the end of the stage. The winner of this wore a red jersey. Both the combination classification and intermediate sprint classification were retired in 1989, and were consigned to the footnote of cycling history. Until now.


"The Badger" Bernard Hinault* (right) in the combination jersey in the 80's
*Please note Hinault is nicknamed The Badger, so far he hasn't taken a badger test

     Like Indiana Jones obtaining the Chachapoyan Fertility Idol from the Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors to put in the National Museum, or like Indiana Jones obtaining the Sankara Stones from the Temple of Doom to return to the Mayapore village, or like Indiana Jones overcoming three challenges to obtain the Holy Grail to save his father's life, I am going back in time and working out who would have been the combined champion and intermediate sprint champion from 1990, all the way up to the present day, and going back to 1953, when the green jersey was first contested.

 

Scoring
To do this we first need to look at the scoring for the combined classification and the intermediate sprint classification. From 1968 to 1972 the combined classification was taken by adding the riders positions in the yellow/polka dot/green jerseys and the lower the score the better, eg. in 1969 Eddy Merckx won all 3 competitions, giving him a combined classification score of 3 (1+1+1), so he won the combined classification. In 1973, 1974 and 1980 to 1982 this also included the intermediate sprint ranking. From 1985 until the end in 1989 the scoring was 25 points for 1st in one of the four competitions, 24 points for 2nd, etc., highest score winning, with a maximum possible score of 100. This gives us 3 different scoring systems : the 1968 Method, the 1973 Method and the 1985 Method

1968 Method : Yellow + Polka + Green
1973 Method : Yellow + Polka + Green + Red
1985 Method : Yellow + Polka + Green + Red (25 points for first)

Winners of the Combination Classifications
When underlined you can click on the year to provide a full breakdown of the yellow jersey (overall), polka dot jersey (mountains) and green jersey (sprinter) rankings, and what the red jersey (intermediate sprints) rankings would have been. The yellow highlighted cells show the year when the combination classification was competed and the calculation method that year.
