Team Sky wear new jersey for Tour de France final stage

Team Sky will celebrate Chris Froome’s fourth overall Tour de France victory by wearing an updated version of their Castelli jersey on the final stage.

Froome increased his lead in the overall standings on Saturday’s time trial to give himself a lead of 54 seconds over Rigoberto Uran with just the sprint stage into Paris. The team narrowly missed getting two riders on the podium with Mikel Landa short by one second of overhauling Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale) in the Marseille time trial.

The jersey will be the same white design that they have been wearing throughout the race, but instead of the blue stripe on their back they will have a yellow one. There will also be a yellow stripe across the chest on the front of the jersey.

Team Sky revealed the new-look jersey in a video on social media. Alongside the yellow accented jerseys, the team has done up their cars and team bus with a yellow strip.

The addition of the yellow stripe has become a tradition for Team Sky on the five occasions that they have won the Tour de France. Froome will also ride a completely yellow bike on the final stage.
