So much has happened in the last few weeks in professional cycling including plenty of crashes by the big names in the sport and of course almost three week of serous racing in Italy---but it would just take too much space to chronicle it all here.
That's why you'll want to listen to this latest edition of The Lanterne Rouge where host Roman Mica and his partner in cycling crime, James Raia discuss all of the action through the Giro d’Italia.
Raia, a journalist since 1976, is co-author of Tour de France For Dummies, a contributor to many publications and the National Cycling Examiner. A long-distance runner, he also rides his bike -- to nearby coffeehouses.
But more importantly, James has covered the Tour de France as well as the Ironman World Championships for dozens of years.
Wikipedia defines the cycling term "The Lanterne Rouge" as: the competitor in last place in a cycling race such as the Tour de France. The phrase comes from the French "Red Lantern" and refers to the red lantern hung on the caboose of a railway train, which conductors would look for in order to make sure none of the couplings had become disconnected.
Sometimes it must be noted that the Lanterne Rouge has the best view of the entire bike race.
