The King of the Mountains  is the title given to the best Climber in a Cycling  road race.

The highest position over several designated climbs in a single day road race, but it's usually applied to stage races like the Tour De France.

In the Tour de France, at the top of each significant climb, points are awarded to the riders who are first over the top. The climbs are categorised from 1 (most difficult) to 4 (least difficult) based on their steepness and length. A fifth category, called Hors Categorie (outside category) which applies to the mountains rated even more severe than first category. Similar ratings apply to climbs in the other major Tours.

In the Tour de France, the leader in the mountains competition wears a distinctive POLKA DOT JERSEY so here I have incorporated the Polka dots into the overall design.

Although the King of the Mountains was first recognised in the 1933 Tour de France, the distinctive jersey was not introduced until 1975.
