Classification[edit]

There were five different jerseys awarded in the 2012 Giro Donne. These followed the same format as those in the men's Giro d'Italia, and as in the men's race, the leader of the general classification received a pink jersey. This classification was calculated by adding the combined finishing times of the riders from each stage, and the overall winner of this classification is considered the winner of the Giro.[6]

The other jerseys differ in colour from those of the men's Giro:

  • The points classification was awarded the maglia gialla or yellow jersey, a change from its mauve (ciclamino) colour in preceding years.[7] Points are awarded for placements at stage finishes as well as at selected intermediate sprint points on the route, and the jersey is received by the rider with the most overall points to their name.[6]
  • The mountains classification was awarded the green jersey (maglia verde). Points were allocated for the first few riders over selected mountain passes on the route, with more difficult passes paying more points, and the jersey is received by the rider with the most overall points to their name.[6]
  • The white jersey (maglia bianca) for the best young rider was given to the highest-placed rider on the general classification aged 23 or under on 1 January 2012 (i.e. born in or after 1989).
  • The blue jersey (maglia azzura) was given to the highest-placed Italian rider on the general classification.
