The Combined Jersey - the lost jersey of the Tour de France (1985-1989)
It is back, the vanished combined jersey. The combined jersey was worn in the Tour de France cycling race by the leader of the combination classification. The combination classification was introduced in 1968 in the Tour de France and was based on the classification of all other classifications. The predecessor was first the white jersey, but from 1975 this combined jersey became the jersey for the best youngster. From 1985 to 1989 the combined jersey was awarded. A striking jersey that was made up of patches of different jerseys - a piece of the yellow jersey, a piece of the green jersey, a piece of the polka dot jersey and a piece of the - also vanished - red jersey. The combination classification was based on the ranking of a rider in all of these other rankings: the yellow jersey, the green jersey, the polka dot jersey (and the red jersey between 1983 and 1989). So the most all-round rider received the combined jersey. Only the real big riders were able to win the all-round ranking.
