More info

The mountain classification in the tour de France is a side classification. The points for this can be earned at the passage on a mountain top. The rider who has collected the most points is the leader in the mountain classification and is allowed to wear the polka dot jersey. After the last stage, the final winner of the mountain classification is declared the King of the Mountains.

The climbs where points can be earned for the mountain classification are divided into 5 categories: Outside category (e.g. Alpe d'Huez or Mont Ventoux), first category, second category, third category and fourth category.

The polka dot jersey was introduced in 1975. In the years before, there was no jersey for the mountain king. The first rider to wear the polka dot jersey was Joop Zoetemelk. The first winner of the polka dot jersey was Lucien Van Impe. The record holder in the number of final wins of the polka dot jersey is Richard Virenque. He won 7 times (in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2003 and 2004). The Spaniard Federico Bahamontes and the Belgian Lucien Van Impe each won him 6 times.

Every year there is also a "roof" in the Tour. That's the highest peak in the round. A Trophy Henri Desgrange is awarded to the rider who reaches this top first. The trophy is named after the founder of the Tour de France. The highest peak is usually the col du Galibier or the col du Tourmalet. On the Galibier there is also a monument in honour of Desgrange.
