Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz (7-1-2022): What color is the jersey worn by the leader of the Tour de France?

A Yellow
B Polka dot
C Green

During the three weeks of the Tour de France, it’s always easy to spot the race leader in the ‘maillot jaune.’ The yellow jersey was introduced in 1919 by then-director Henri Desgrange to make it easier for the increasingly growing crowds to spot the front-runner. Before that, the leader would wear a hardly noticeable green armband.

The correct answer to this quiz is Yellow.
