Red jersey at the Tour de France

The red jersey was awarded to the leader of the intermediate sprints classification in the Tour de France. The competition was first calculated in 1971, but the jersey was only awarded in 1984. Because the non-finish sprints also awarded points for the maillot vert, the red jersey was considered redundant and has not been awarded since 1989.
