lanterne.jpg

Lanterne rouge, red lantern, farolillo rojo ou lanterna vermelha.

Essa descrição refere-se originalmente ao último vagão de uma composição férrea, que leva uma luz vermelha na sua traseira para identificar o final da mesma.

No ciclismo, mais especificamente no Tour de France, é a expressão utilizada para identificar aquele ciclista que é o último colocado na geral após o final da prova.

Não chega a ser motivo de vergonha, já que o último colocado é conhecido, mas o penúltimo não, e todos levam o título com muito bom humor.
