Which year did Michael Rasmussen win the 'King of the Mountains' jersey in Tour de France for the first time?

2005

Explanation

In Tour de France 2005, Michael Rasmussen won the climbing jersey as the first Dane ever. He had 185 points. Oscar Pereiro, who came second, had 155. Denmark's highest point is 170 metres above sea level. In 2006, the Spaniard David de la Fuente gave Michael Rasmussen strong competition, but Rasmussen won the polka dot jersey on the 11th stage and ended up with 166 points against Fuente's 113. Michael Rasmussen has thus won the jersey twice.
