Green and Spots in the Early Stages
Frequently it happens that the GC leader also leads in the points and/or mountains.
When this happens the second place rider in the classification gets to wear that jersey the following day:
1. Do they actually award (podium girls and handshakes) the green/spots jersey to the GC leader? Or do they award it to the guy who's going to wear it? or both?
2. Does the GC leader get the daily money and prizes associated with the green/spots jersey or do they go to the guy who's going to wear it?
3. What are the daily cash and other prizes associated with these jerseys? I remember one year Greg Lemond said he got a TV just for being in the combination jersey (sponsored by Toshiba?) one stage, and got other prizes every day he wore it.
