King of the Sprint is a concept based on Paul Brown’s Unofficial Football World Championships project, which awards an alternative World Cup title according to a boxing-like system. We transferred this idea to professional cycling, more specifically to the niche discipline of mass sprint finishes. We explained this choice in the very first post on this website.
The King of the Sprint title can change hands in so-called title races. The rules according to which these title races are contested can be found here.
The King of the Sprint website contains race previews and race reports, statistics and analysis. It will be updated at least after every title race.
