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: Leadership, Triumph , Team Spirit
Red as fire, like the one who inflames the race, the one who lights up and then burns himself in a sprint. Red like speed, like shivers, like thrill. But nonetheless red as danger. The red jersey for the first classified by the point.

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
