It seems that many riders would compete to finish last rather than in the back of the pack. That's something I would discourage here!
It was not my intention to encourage low production by any means. I just wanted to honor all
who fold, no matter how low their production. DriedFrogPills doesn't churn out much, but continues week in and week out to fold.
As for the Lanternes Rouge, it was never an official award. Today the official race organization actively discourages it.
