The Lanterne Rouge of the 2010 Tour de France, Adriano Malori, was interviewed recently in VeloNation.
". . . a 12th place finish in the prologue in Rotterdam seemed to herald a shot at a solid first week. However a crash in Stage 2 during the infamous stage to Spa put paid to that. The young Italian was left to struggle just to continue in the sport's most difficult race. Eventually, Malori would finish as lanterne rouge in the 2010 Tour de France, but it was a finish nonetheless, and absolutely nothing to scoff at when considering that was his first ever Grand Tour. More importantly, Malori was a vital cog in the team in support of Alessandro Petacchi and his quest to take his first ever Green Jersey in Paris - which he did."
Best wishes to him on continued success!
