Domestiques, water-carriers, attackers, anti-climbers and anti-heroes. They deserve a jersey as well. They are the peloton and always keep cycling. In spite of mountains and time trials, they won’t give up. They race for their captain. Although they are low placed riders they try to finish in time the next day. Even if they know things will get rough. It requires courage. It requires mentality. They try to join the “bus” on the flanks of a mountain and ride up the mountain together. Those who fail, can only hope and pray. Continue cycling for only one price, the price of being Last Man in the Tour. The red lantern, la Laterne Rouge.
