Team Classification

The first three riders from each team have their time taken and added together to make a total time for each team; this is calculated for each stage result to determine the winner of the team competition for the stage. It is likewise calculated after each stage with to determine the leader of the team general classification. The team classification (general) determines the order of the team cars following the race the next stage. Each carries a cash prize for the day and the final general classification at the end of the race.

* Between 1930 and 1961, riders raced for their Nations, and not trade teams as we have today. National teams proved to be a problem as it often pitted the favorites from one nation against each other for leadership of the team. National teams also limited the number of riders from a country in spite of their having enough talented riders to make more than one competitive team.
