Mountains Classification Tour de France 2020

Tour de France is known as the biggest cycling tour that involves a secondary competition named mountains classification. This classification will take place this year as the 81st edition, which launched the first time in 1933. It awards to the rider who collects the most points for reaching mountain summits first. The classification champion is called the King of the mountains and wins the polka dot jersey since 1975, recognized by the pronounce of maillot à pois rouges in French, a white jersey with red polka dots.

Romain Bardet is the most recent champion of the mountains classification who won the 2019 edition. He is a professional French road cycling rider and is currently riding for UCI WorldTeam AG2R La Mondiale. Bardet is known for his strength to climb, making him one of the top Grand Tours contenders.

Current Situation

There are points at the top of many Tour's climbs for the riders who are first over the top. Based on their difficulty, the climbs are classified into categories ranging from 1 to 4, measured as a function of their steepness, duration, location within the stage, and location in the overall event.

The first stage is typically the most challenging, and the fourth stage is the least involved. Some of the hardest climbs were originally given different scales of points, and they were thus classified as uncategorized hors catégorie, a word which has since passed into the French language to apply to every unusual phenomenon. However, the hors catégorie climbs have awarded a single points scale and have turned out efficiently despite the name, only in the top category above category 1.

The scoring system was modified in 2004 so that 3 points were awarded to the first rider through a fourth category climb, while 20 points were collected by the first rider to complete the hors catégorie climb. Other points on a fourth category climb are only given with the top three positions while the top ten riders are obtained on the hors catégorie climb. Points have been calculated for the final climb of the day since 2004, doubling it if there is at least a second category climb at that climb.

If the mountain is an HC with a height of 2000 m, the points are doubled. The race organizer decides which mountains are used with the classification of the mountains and which category they are in. If two riders in the mountain achieve an equal number of points, the winner is determined to be the rider with the most first places on the hors catégorie cols. When both riders have an equal number of first reachings in all categories, the rider with the highest score in the overall rankings table will win the mountain jersey.
