Lanterne Rouge

Got mine for next year

Tony Hoar, 78, won the Lanterne Rouge as the last man to finish the 1955 Tour de France

Certainly the Lanterne Rouge notoriety helped Hoar back in 1955. "I got all sorts of contracts after that race," he says. "It really caught the French imagination." He raced in Paris the day after the Tour de France, and competed in five events in seven days in Belgium.
Funny thing, though: Hoar himself had never heard of the Lanterne Rouge when he lined up for the Tour de France.

french twist for non cyclists......Titled Lanterne Rouge !!
