Tour de Butte

The Tour de Butte is an annual multiple stage bicycle race primarily held in the Suwerenny area, while also occasionally making passes through other areas. The race was first organized in 2014 to increase the use of bicycles in Suwerenny. It is currently run by the Government of Suwerenny. The race has been held annually since its first edition in 2014. The number of teams varies between 2 and 4, with over three riders each. All of the stages are timed to the finish; after finishing the riders' times are compounded with their previous stage times. The rider with the lowest aggregate time is the leader of the race and gets to don the coveted yellow jersey. While the general classification garners the most attention there are other contests held within the Tour: the points classification for the sprinters, the mountains classification for the climbers, young rider classification for riders under the age of 10, and the team classification for the fastest teams.

Jersey yellow.svg.png The winner of the General Classification is the current leader with the lowest time overall. The winner wears a yellow jersey.

Mountains classification

25px-Jersey polkadot.svg.png The climbers' jersey is worn by the rider who, at the start of each stage, has the largest amount of climbing points. If a rider leads two or more of the categories, the climbers' jersey is worn by the rider in second, or third, place in that contest. At the end of the Tour, the rider holding the most climbing points wins the classification. In fact, some riders, particularly those who are neither sprinters nor particularly good at time-trialing, may attempt only to win this particular competition within the race. The Tour has five categories for ranking the mountains the race covers. The scale ranges from category 4, the easiest, to hors catégorie, the hardest. The difficulty of a climb is established by its steepness, length and its position on the course.

The point distribution for the mountains is as follows:

Type 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
22px-Mountainstage.png Hors catégorie 25 20 15 10 5
22px-Mountainstage.png First Category 20 15 10 5

Young rider classification

25px-Jersey white.png The leader of the classification is determined the same way as the general classification, with the riders' times being added up after each stage and the eligible rider with lowest aggregate time is dubbed the leader. The Young rider classification is restricted to the riders that are under the age of 10.

Team Classification

25px-Jersey yellow number.png The team classification is assessed by adding the time of each team's best three riders each day. The competition does not have its own jersey.

Lanterne rouge

The rider who has taken most time is called the lanterne rouge (red lantern, as in the red light at the back of a vehicle so it can be seen in the dark)
