The polka dot jersey

The polka dot jersey is the special cycling jersey given to the "King of the Mountains" in the Tour de France.

The King of the Mountains is the rider who has collected the most points in the hill-climbing sections of each stage. The points are given accordingly to the order of the riders at the summit of the mountains and the difficulty of the climb, which is judged by the length of the climb and the average steepness (in %) of the climb.
