Classification leadershipEdit

In the 2015 Tour of Norway, four different jerseys were awarded. For the general classification, calculated by adding each cyclist's finishing times on each stage, and allowing time bonuses (10, 6 and 4 seconds respectively) for the first three finishers on mass-start stages, the leader received a yellow jersey. Additionally, there were a points classification, awarding a green jersey, and mountains classification, the leadership of which was marked by a polka dot jersey. The fourth jersey represents the young rider classification, marked by a white jersey. This was decided the same way as the general classification, but only young riders were eligible. There was also classification for teams.[15]
