The event started in Luxembourg and ended in Paris. The Tour circled France counter-clockwise, visiting the Pyrenees before the Alps. It has no overall winner—although American cyclist Lance Armstrong originally won the event, the United States Anti-Doping Agency announced in August 2012 that they had disqualified Armstrong from all his results since 1998. There were several classifications in the 2002 Tour de France. The most important was the general classification, calculated by adding each cyclist's finishing times on each stage. Additionally, there was a points classification, which awarded a green jersey. There was also a mountains classification. The organization had categorized some climbs as either hors categories, first, second, third, or fourth-category. The fourth individual classification was the young rider classification, which was marked by the white jersey. For the team classification, the times of the best three cyclists per team on each stage were added; the leading team was the team with the lowest total time. There were also two special awards each with a prize of €3000. Santiago Botero won the Henri Desgrange and Laurent Jalabert won the Jacques Goddet.
