In 1933, the King of the Mountains classification was first calculated. The winner was Vicente Trueba, who reached the tops of most mountains first. However, Trueba was a very bad descender, so he never gained anything from reaching the tops first. The Tour de France director, Henri Desgrange, decided that cyclists should receive a bonus for reaching the tops first.
