After the 'chaotic' stage 3 of the 2010 Giro d'Italia, Damien Gaudin, French rider for Bbox Bouygues Telecom, is now Lanterne Rouge. He was the final Lanterne Rouge of the 2009 Vuelta a Espana.

Does either of my readers know if there has ever been a Vuelta-Giro double Lanterne Rouge within the same calendar year?

Giro underway!

The 2010 Giro d'Italia has begun! The first Lanterne Rouge from the Stage 1 individual time trial in Amsterdam (of 198 starters) is Guillaume Blot, French rider for Cofidis.

I won't be posting about it here much, but I will be continuing to tweet about the Giro Lanternes Rouges here, as well as discussing it on our Lanterne Rouge Facebook page.

In unrelated cycling news (that I missed earlier), a 2-time (2006, 2007) Tour de France Prologue Lanterne Rouge, Ruben Lobato, was nabbed last June for violating the biological passport standards.
