Pink like the “Gazzetta dello Sport, like a newspaper’s page, like those leaflets handed out on the top of a hill and then laid over the stomach as a protection from the cold of the descent. Pink like a champion’s dawn. The pink jersey prerogative of the number one in the place list.
VALUES: Leadership, Triumph, Team Spirit
Blue as the sky when you raise your eyes on top of the climb, looking for fresh air. Blue as the swollen torrent that floods from the source up to the botton of the sea. Blue as the waters of a Mountain glacier lake. Such is the Maglia Azzurra of the first Mountain Gran Prix (GPM).
VALUES: Climbing, Agility, Stamina
Cyclamen like a flower and already like a fruit, Like a thought and already like a memory, Like a desire and already like nostalgia, Like a full stop and already like semi-colon and new paragraph, Like a goal we are aiming at, today, tomorrow, forever. The Maglia Ciclamino of the King of the General Point Classification.
VALUES: Speed, Sprint, Power
White as a symbol of freshness and even innocence, of cleanliness and even candor, like youth, not to say shyness. White like a sleepless night for a neophyte, a beginner, a novice. The white jersey for the number one among the junior category.
VALUES: Youth, Enthusiasm, Willfulness
