5. The Polka Dot Jersey

Provincial Living - - Entertainment -

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.
