5. The Polka Dot Jersey
The maillot à pois rouges is awarded to the best mountain climber. Like the green jersey, the polka dot jersey is also a points- based competition. The higher and steeper the mountain, the more points available at the top. The French often shine in this competition, although last year’s winner was the first Pole to win a jersey at the Tour de France – Rafał Majka.
