Hi - can anyone confirm that young rider points are still being given for the Vuelta even though there isn't a young rider jersey?

I'm umming and ahhing over whether to swap Pozzovivo for Majka for the TT. I don't think either will get decent stage points but I think both will improve their placing in the top 10 and stay there until the pyrenees. If Majka gets 5 for being best young'un then that decision is made for me.

Thanks

There is no young rider classification and therefore there are no points being given.

It tells you how the stage is scored in the link in the banner at the top telling what stage is next and vaguely what type of stage it is.

Pro tip - Ignore young rider points when there's no mention of them  3
