Why 3?

Greetings,

Something has bugged me for a while now so I'll ask my BF brothers and sisters to see if anyone knows

On the podium the stage winners give the girls kisses, one on each cheek.

So why is it that Lance gives 'em 3 kisses instead of just two?

Zack, I need a life, Jones

Apparently I need a life as I noticed the same thing! I don't have an answer, though.

if i was in his shoes, i'd want all the kisses i could get. lance is indeed the only one i've ever seen do three. it was a bit awkward at first, but they all know it's coming by now.

I think its something like Italians do two kisses, French do three, and folks that are neither simply get confused

It depends on how beautiful they are, right ?
I would give the girls 4 kisses, or 5.

Pgreene is correct. Italians give two and the French give three.

I think the first two are for thank you, and the last one is to slip them his room number. I would think that a french kiss would be more appropriate at the Tour de France.
