Success in a multi-day race requires from the cyclist a very good physical shape, skillful recovery, tactical instinct and strong team support. There are usually several simultaneous competitions at multi-day races as some cyclists compete for the general prize and others for the lap victory, activity or scoring of mountains. This complicates the tactical circumstances of the competition and requires from the cyclists a constant concentration on the competitive situation.
The team also plays a significant part on obtaining the general prize, as the team’s task is to control departures and to neutralize occurring takeovers as well as to help the leader back into the group in case of a technical failure of the bike or any misfortunes.
The competition consists of the individual and the team classification. Every team consists max 8 and min 5 racers.
