Lanterne Rouge 2013!

It's stage 12, and the competition for last place is well under way!

At 2:09 is Dimitry Muravyev, a Kazhak national on Astana. He has almost 4 minutes on the Canadian Svein Tuft (Orica Greenedge), riding his first Tour de France at age 36! Hot on his heels are Jeromé Cousin (FR, Europcar) and Veelers (Kittel's lead-out man).

At the risk of betting early, I say Veelers. He should make the time cuts, as Kittel will need him for the final sprint in Paris.

Speaking of Kittel, he is in the running himself for the Lanterne Rouge, 170th place out of 182.

It's a pretty amazing sport when a 3 stage winner could find himself in last place overall!

Wim Vansevenant - the greatest "red jersey" rider in tour history. 3 times he was able to accomplish the feat.

Going into Paris, Svein Tuft out of Canada is the current red jersey holder at 4:24:39. He's 6 minutes 15 seconds behind Assan Bazayev of Kazakhstan.

And Marcel Kittel is making a run for the Lanterne Rouge podium as he is 167th out of 170 riders but needs to lose 7 and half minutes tomorrow. Somehow, I don't think that is going to happen tomorrow.

This year's bottom five!

165. Juan Jose LOBATO DEL VALLE, Euskaltel-Euskadi, at 4:07:55
166. Marcel KITTEL, Argos-Shimano, at 4:10:08
167. Dmitriy MURAVYEV, Astana, at 4:21:46
168. Assan BAZAYEV, Astana, at 4:24:52

Kittel nabbed first place in today's sprint, but wasn't quite able to nab the Lanterne. Better luck next year!

Tuft was the oldest rookie ever in the history of the race according to news reports at age 36. He also won a stage of the race in the team time trial for Orica-GreenEdge. Also was involved in four wrecks. Good article about him.

Tuft's consistency throughout the Tour is what won him the LR.

Kittel nabbed first place in today's sprint, but wasn't quite able to nab the Lanterne. Better luck next year!
I'll say it again, how amazing is this sport when a 4 stage winner in the TDF like Kittel could be almost dead-last in the overall contention! He must have had some agonizing rides in the mountains.

Is this a record?

I don't think so. I recall Tyler Farrar being very low in the standings sometime in the past few years.

It's also not that someone like Kittel is incapable of climbing. It's that unless a sprinter is going for green, they're better off expending as little effort as possible in the mountains.

What's impressive is that he got his effort-conserving in the mountains and time trials so spot on as to finish 4th last.

Still, to be only 5 percent below the winning time of the Tour De France is some remarkable achievement. Can you imagine Usian Bolt being only 5 percent slower then the fastest marathoner on a 26 mile course?

Just curious, do they ever hold a very short distance sprinting event for cyclists like a one mile event, which I guess would be equal to a 200 meter dash in running?

Track cycling has some events like that. It's usually done in a velodrome, though, not on open roads.

Kittel isn't cycling's equivalent of Usain Bolt, though. Chris Hoy is.

Think more of a middle distance runner, 1500 or 5000,, who can also turn in a good marathon time, but most of all is a strong finisher.

Track had the 1K which is supposed to be one of the more painful track events.

I would think true last place is the first person to abandon. Remember, Tuft did finish the race. To me Tuft is one place ahead of the poor rider who had to abandon on the last day.
