Intermediate sprints classification in the Tour de France

The intermediate sprints classification, also known as the points chauds classification (French for hot points), was a secondary competition in the Tour de France that was contested between 1966 and 1989. From 1984 onwards, the leader was indicated by the red jersey.

HistoryEdit

The classification began in 1966. Because the non-finish sprints also awarded points for the points classification, the intermediate sprints classification was considered redundant and removed from the Tour in 1989.[1]
