Lanterne Rouge coverage

Bill Strickland blogs about "First at being last" at Bicycling. Worth a read for followers of the Lanterne Rouge: "Yellow is fine, but this Tour's record-setting race for the Lanterne Rouge can't be missed." Although I would never categorize finishing the Tour de France - whether in 2nd or 162nd position - as anything remotely akin to "abject defeat".

(Thanks to The Wrench for the tip!)

What about those who drop out of the Tour along the way? Repeatedly, even? Indeed, this is just about the time in the Tour when we typically start seeing our first cases of that notorious disease which strikes down pure sprinters who aren't doing well in the green jersey rankings, "Mountain Fever". Let's all keep an eye out for those.
