Wim Vansevenant taked 2nd consecutive lanterne rouge

Drunkcyclist would like to congratulate Wim Vansevenant on his second consecutive lanterne rouge.

By claiming his second consecutive last spot in Paris, the Belgian enters into the history books as one of only three riders to claim the double. Frenchman Daniel Masson did it in 1922-1923 and Austrian Gerhard Schonbacher in 1979-1980. Finishing as lanterne rouge isn’t earning Vansevenant a lot of money in the Tour de France but afterwards it often turns out to be a good promotion stunt in the post-Tour criteriums.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Sure, but did Wim get tested ? This kidda consistency smacks of something nefarious.
