After 5 stages the rider with the lowest aggregate time is the winner.

The climbers' jersey is worn by the rider who, at the start of each stage, has the largest number of climbing points. At the end of the tour, the rider holding the most climbing points wins the classification.
The points classification is determined by the points are given at the finish line and at the intermediate sprints of each stage. The red jersey is worn by the rider who at the start of each stage, has the largest number of points. The rider who, at the end of the tour, holds the most points, wins the points competition.
