Santos Ochre Leader's Jersey

The Santos Ochre Jersey is awarded to the rider with the fastest cumulative time at the end of each stage - the leader of the 'general classification -, and the overall winner at the end of the race. Ochre is the colour of the iconic South Australian outback, and is unique among the general classification jerseys in the UCI WorldTour.

southaustralia.com Sprint Jersey

The southaustralia.com Sprint jersey is awarded at the end of each stage, and the race, to the rider with the most number of points in the sprint classification. The sprint (or points) classification is determined by allocating points to riders at 'intermediate sprint' locations on each stage, as well as the finish of the race. The first three riders receive points towards the classification. The points classification leader and winner traditionally wears a green-coloured jersey in world cycling, and the Santos Tour Down Under also maintains this tradition.

Most recent winner: Peter Sagan (2018, BORA hansgrohe)
Most southaustralia.com Sprint jerseys: 3 - Robbie McEwan (2002, 2004-5 with Davitamon-Lotto)

The Santos Tour Down Under King of the Mountain jersey has navy blue polka dots.
