Best Old Rider Jersey?

Post by Postboxer »

How about having a Jersey for the best old rider in a grand tour? What age should it be? Or between the oldest 30 or 40 riders competing? What colour Jersey? The colour of a Werther's Original wrapper? Or a design of many birthday cake candles?

The grey jersey? :)

Perhaps the silver jersey would be more respectful (?) :D

IMO over 35 would be about the right and appropriate elder rider qualification.

The stats of the 2021 Giro are below:

Age & number of
30 = 7
31 = 17
32 = 8
33 = 8
34 = 8
35 = 3
36 = 9
37 = 3
38 = 5

The oldest rider in this Giro was Koen de Kort (Trek-Segafredo) 38 years 243 days

The youngest was Andrii Ponomar (Androni Giocattoli - Sidermec) 18 years 246 days

Ponomar was the only teenager, the next youngest was 21 year old Remco Evenepoel
