The White Jersey of the Vuelta a España will have a new meaning from the 2019 edition of the race. Up until 2018, that jersey was awarded to the best rider of the combined ranking and from 2019 it will be given to the best young rider of the race.

The White Jersey will be sponsored by Fenie Energia and will be awarded to the best rider under 26 in the General Classification. Until the 2018 edition of the race, the most outstanding young competitor got a trophy after every stage sponsored by the sports newspaper AS.

The 2018 Vuelta a España got the second youngest podium in the history of the race and that inspired the organisation of the race to implement a jersey to recognise the young talents in the peloton. The Spanish grand tour is following the example of the Tour de France, which has a white jersey that has been worn by riders like Alberto Contador, Romain Bardet, Simon Yates and Nairo Quintana.

"t is a privilege to clothe the rough diamonds of international cycling," said Fenie Energia's CEO Isabel Reija. "Our jersey will be worn by today’s finest young riders, who will go on to become tomorrow’s stars.

"The generational handover in this sport is a reality, and we are delighted to be part of it, just as we are part of the regeneration of the energy sector."
