Latest King of the Mountains details are finally here and it seems this season’s Tour de France is going to be lit!

 

In total, Tour de France will feature nine tough climbs which will be incorporated throughout its 3351km route. The biggest, most important Grand Tour will start on July the 7th and will end in July the 29th.

 

It seems tour organizers have wanted to mix things a little bit by sending riders into different, unexplored routes despite being part of famous and familiar mountains.

 

‘Beyond Category’ climbs

 

This season’s nine climbs are all classified as “beyond Category” due to their steepness and length.

 

Despite these climbs, this year riders will have to prepare themselves for 19 climbs in total, 10 of which belong to the category 1, giving a total of almost 20 challenging and demanding climbs.

 

Depending on the category of the climb, each rider has the opportunity to gain points and the ones who collects more gets to wear the Tour’s king of the mountains jersey.

 

According to Tour organizers, there will also be a ‘points bonus’ that vary from 1 to 3 seconds to the first three riders who finish the flat stages which are 87 in total.
