King of the Mountains at Prudential RideLondon

King of the Mountains

The King of the Mountains challenge at the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic will provide a competition within the main race for the 150 professional male riders taking part in the event. The KOM competition involves a series of climbs within the race; points are awarded to the first six cyclists who reach the top of each designated climb first. The winner will be decided by adding the points awarded on each of the classified climbs.

Each King of the Mountains climb is indicated with a sign at the start of the ascent and a line on the road at the summit to mark the end of the ascent.

There are six climbs in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic: one at Newlands Corner and five at Box Hill. Points are awarded as follows:
