The points in this competition were awarded at finishes and intermediate sprints. The amount of points varied with the kind of terrain of the particular stage. Most points were given in the flat stages, followed by medium mountain and high mountain stages. The lowest amount of points were awarded in the ITT, obviously, because these didn’t feature intermediate sprints.
