What we should have consensus on[edit]

For a short stage race, which is currently defined as any stage race that is not a Grand Tour (until a non-Grand Tour race article proves to exceed WP:SIZE), the following style guidelines should apply.

Lead[edit]

The lead should state the name of the race, the location it covers, the dates over which it took place, what series, if any, the race was part of (i.e. UCI ProTour), and the overall winner. Dates should reflect the date style used locally by the location of the Tour - so for example, dates on an article about an edition of the Tour of California or the Tour of Missouri should use "month-day," while dates on an article about the Dauphiné-Libéré or Paris-Nice should use "day-month." Some overall detail of the race is acceptable here, but this should by and large be left for later on in the article.

Every cycling event should include {{Infobox Cycling race report}}. This infobox includes conversion of kilometers to miles and miles to kilometers automatically, but input determines which will be displayed first. Again, this should reflect local usage - for American races, list miles first, elsewhere, list kilometers first. Wikilink riders' names in the palmarès section of the infobox, and use {{ct}} as much as possible for the teams. If the team does not have a code associated with {{ct}}, either set it up or just list the team name textually, and wikilink it. It is not necessary to link nations, as this is done automatically. The full name of the nation and its three-letter abbreviation are equivalent - enter either ESP or Spain, for example, in the infobox. Remove any unused fields from the infobox, but do not remove fields for an image or average speed, as these are likely or at least potentially to be filled in the future.

Participating teams[edit]

Stages[edit]

Include a sub-section for each stage. The top line, in bold, should give the date of the stage, its start point and end point (if a stage starts and ends in the same place, such as a time trial or circuit race, just give the place name once), the length in kilometers and miles (first put whichever is most appropriate per the location of the race), and the type of the stage if it's not a simple road race. If the stage starts or ends in a nation other than the one in which it mostly takes place, denote this in the header by giving the nation in parentheses after the city. If the start or end city has a Wikipedia article that is slightly different in title from what the race uses, pipe the correct link to the name given by the race (exception: always use common English names instead of foreign versions). Use an endash between the date and the start down and a comma before the stage length. Stage length should be noted using {{convert|length|km or mi|number of decimal places to round to|abbr=on}}. The precision should be the same as the sources available, usually either zero or one decimal place.

For example

;23 July 2008 – [[Embrun, Hautes-Alpes|Embrun]] to [[Alpe d'Huez]], {{convert|210|km|0|abbr=on}}

which gives

23 July 2008 – Embrun to Alpe d'Huez, 210 km (130 mi)

but

20 May 2009 – Turin to Arenzano, 214 km (133 mi)

rather than Torino, which the race organizers use.

Occasionally, the name given by race organizers for a start or finish location will be a location so specific that Wikipedia has an article about a larger area that includes the place named by the race. Link to the best Wikipedia article and pipe it to the name used by the race. If the race organizers use two names to describe a start or finish town (a prominent example occurs yearly in the Tour de France - the final stage is always said to be "Paris Champs Élysées"), link to the more specific location and give both names in the visible link. Do NOT use two consecutive wikilinks - this is contrary to the MOS.

Example of both of the above:

24 May 2009 – Centre d'Alt Rendiment to Circuit de Catalunya Montmeló, 110.8 km (68.8 mi)

Include a brief preview of each stage, discussing its physical profile and length. This need not be more than a sentence or two in most cases.

After the stage has been run, summarize it. Discuss, for road stages, any major breakaways on the day, when they were caught, and the character of the finish (breakaway/mass sprint/riders finishing two or three at a time). For particularly mountainous stages, include brief detail on the day's major climbs. If any leader's jerseys change hands, note this. For time trials, mention who set times early on that stood for a particularly long time (or if none did, mention that). If anything that took place during the stage seems notable for a non-competitive reason (for example, riders hitting dogs or particularly spectacular crashes in the past have been widely disseminated videos on the web), consider mentioning that. The summary should comprise about 1-3 paragraphs, and at least the top of the subsequent tables should be visible while the entire summary is still on the screen.

Below the textual summary, include two tables, side-by-side, one for the top on the stage and one of the top ten in the GC as it stood after that stage. Indicate in the stage result table which jerseys were worn by classification leaders on the stage with the icon correct for that jersey
(Jersey yellow.svgJersey green.svgJersey white.svgJersey polkadot.svgJersey pink.svgJersey violet.svgJersey gold.svgJersey red.svgJersey blue.svgJersey orange.svgJersey white greenstripes.PNG), and alternative text describing that the cyclist wore that jersey as classification leader. Place the icon next to the rider's name. For the intermediate GC table, indicate any and all jerseys awarded to the cyclist on the podium with those same icons, and alternative text describing that the cyclist was awarded the jersey as classification leader.

Jersey progress table[edit]

Prior to 2008, a table like is seen in this revision was the one that was regularly used. This has now been specifically discouraged, after conversation during the 2008 Tour de France. You may still find it on articles about old races; if so, you're encouraged to convert it to the new one, such as is seen on almost any event currently. The names on the same horizontal row as a stage should reflect the jerseys awarded on the podium after that stage. The table colors should be based on the colors for the jerseys awarded; there can be some guesswork as to what hexadecimal code best represents a particular color jersey, but for the most part, the colors have been decided, on articles about previous years' races. Do not change colors without discussion. When in doubt, just be bold and come up with a color that represents the jersey accurately. The top and bottom of each vertical column should be a shade darker than the colors on the inside, with the top naming each competition (with the name linked to something explanatory where possible) and the bottom listing the overall winner of each competition.

The table should show who is awarded a jersey, not who wears one. If a rider is awarded two or more jerseys on the podium after a certain stage, list the rider in each column accurately and denote below the table who the "caretaker" wearer of each jersey is. Use the phrase "Jersey wearers when one rider is leading two or more competitions" and precede it with a semicolon. Put an asterisk in front of each line explaining who the caretaker is.

The jersey progress table should appear after the stage profiles.

See also, references, and external links[edit]

Briefly, these sections should be in this order. All internal content should come before any external content. If there is a navigational infobox associated with the race, it should go below the external links.

What still needs discussion[edit]

Feel free to add additional items that need discussion, or proposals for them. If you disagree with something above and feel there needs to be further discussion about it, comment out (but please don't delete) the text from the above section, and formulate a question about it below.
