Search for "Lanterne Rouge" - that's what the last placed rider is called.

Looks like Vansevenant got the Lanterne Rouge in the GC (by 16 secs from Casper, the 2001/2004 Lanterne Rough) and Vansevenant got six of his seven Lanterne Rouge stages in the final six stages. That pales compared to Flores final 14 stages and 15 total in 2005 enroute to the GC.


Looks like we didn't pay that much attention to the closest battle in this year's TDF.
