Tour de France’s yellow jersey
In the Tour de France, bicycling's most prestigious race, the rider with the lowest aggregate time at the end of each day wears a yellow jersey, or in French, maillot jaune. The first winner to formally wear the yellow was Eugene Christophe in 1919.
In recent years, the yellow jersey has been tainted by a cloud of suspicion following a number of high-profile cases of cheating while attempting to win it. Most notably, American Lance Armstrong was stripped of seven Tour de France titles because he was discovered to have used performance-enhancing drugs. Floyd Landis, another American, was stripped of the 2006 title.
In 2012, Bradley Wiggins became the first rider from England to win the yellow jersey.
