    Can anyone explain to me why Cameron Meyer was awarded the polka dot jersey on a flat TTT stage? (Originally presented the white jersey on the podium, but photos from the start line show him in the blue polka dot jersey today).

    Just interested. I’m not so informed on the rules of the vuelta.

    Great to see BMC and some of the other teams make a race of it.All ended well with no disasters.
    The organisers handed out all the jerseys barring the young rider one.Nice to see the old combined jersey is still used in the Vuelta pity the TDF dropped it years ago.
    Hi Jessy,I guess the officials wanted riders to be wearing the jerseys at the start of stage 2 for sponsership reasons.Kind of a symbolic gesture to start the ball rolling.

      Fair enough. So the first team (BMC) got the leaders jersey, the second team (Tinkoff) got green, and the third team (Orica) got polka dots.
