In the history of the differnt color jerseys has any one rider won more than just 1?
lance won 2 the first day--the yellow and greenColnagoFE

and there is a hierarchy to which one to wear starting with the yellow...not sure how it goes after that, but they only wear one.
Thanks. I was thinking at the end of the day.PhatMatt

Lance also got the Polka-dot that day...JBurton

He gave it to the Angel of the Mountains as a gift, but he was the climbing points leader that day as well.
I think Merckx won all three one year...Wayne

at the end when it really counts! AS the other poster points out the winner of the prologue or 1st stage would typically hold both the yellow and green jerseys for a day at least.

I just read the other posts and realized you were talking about the end of the tour. I can't wait for the mountain stages to see how the field shakes up, but I thought the finish to stage 1 was awesome when Burglioti flew out of nowhere to out sprint everyone. So far this year has been better than expected. I was worried that without Cippolini, Simoni, Ullrich, and Pantani that this tour might not have as much excitement, but seeing guys come out of nowhere has taken care of than.
It has been awsome. I cant wait to go home and watch my tapePhatMatt
