    If 'Tete de course' is for the TdF, what phrase is used for the Giro or Vuelta?

    (the question is pretty much all stated in the title line, but...)

    In the Tour de France, 'tete de course' is used to title the rider at the front of the race... used in broadcasts, tv coverage, etc:.

    What phrase do the organizers use for the Giro or the Vuelta?
    Are there any other 'title phrases' that a viewer should be aware of in any of the three grand tours?

    Thanks.
