The points leader, based on the cumulative results of previous races, wore the UCI Africa Tour cycling jersey.

Throughout the season, points were awarded to the top finishers of stages within stage races and the final general classification standings of each of the stages races and one-day events. The quality and complexity of a race also determined how many points were awarded to the top finishers: the higher the UCI rating of a race, the more points were awarded. The UCI ratings from highest to lowest were as follows:

  • Multi-day events: 2.1 and 2.2
  • One-day events: 1.1 and 1.2
