Giro d’Italia 2024 Rankings

The Maglia Rosa is the most iconic symbol of the Giro d’Italia and is awarded to the leader of the general classification. This pink jersey is worn daily by the cyclist who accumulates the lowest time in all the stages of the race. Winning the Maglia Rosa is an honour for any cyclist and is one of the most coveted goals for all participants.

In addition to the general classification, the Giro d’Italia has other secondary classifications that are also hotly contested. The Maglia Ciclamino is awarded to the leader of the points classification, which is determined by the accumulation of points in intermediate sprints and stage finishes. Fast sprinters usually fight for this classification, as it rewards consistency on flat stages.

The Maglia Azzurra, or blue jersey, is awarded to the leader of the mountain classification, which is determined by the accumulation of points at designated mountain passes throughout the race. Climbers and stage chasers often look for this jersey, as it rewards skill on the toughest climbs.

Finally, the Maglia Bianca is awarded to the best young rider of the race, who is the rider under 25 years of age with the best time in the general classification. This jersey recognises emerging talent in the peloton and is often an indicator of future success in professional cycling.

These additional classifications add excitement and strategy to the race, as teams and riders fight not only for the Maglia Rosa, but also for other prizes and awards at stake.
