What is a jersey in cycling?

I take it your talking about the jersey system used in some races to denote achievement or position in the race. In close to all professional and some amateur cycling events, particularly multi-day races, a participant may be eligible to win a jersey which denotes some for form achievement. This system in the three major 'grand tours' in the UCI pro tour, The Tour De France, The Vuelta e' Espana and the Giro d'Italia and generally the jerseys awarded are for cyclists who excel at a particular discipline within the race, for example, sprinting, mountain climbing and the overall position in the race. In more recent decades however, jerseys have been awarded for new categories such as 'best young rider' etc. Effectively, a jersey makes an achievement easily discernable for spectators as well as having a symbolic and traditional significance. In the tour de France, for example, jerseys are awarded for: General Classification-The Race leader- Denoted by a yellow jersey, King of the Mountain-The cyclist who has scored the most points by reaching mountain summits and related objectives- Polka dot Jersey, Best Sprinter-The cyclist who has accumulated the most points in designated sprint objectives- Denoted by a green jersey, Best young rider-The highest cyclist under 25 in the General Classification- Symbolised by a white jersey. Other achievements in races are denoted by subtler symbols, for example, in the Tour De France, the cyclist deemed 'most aggressive' has an inverted number on his jersey. So in a nutshell, a particular type of jersey is awarded to denote achievements in the race, and to discern a symbolic position in the race. I hope that answers your question :)
