now that's cheatin

this made me laugh:

The last time a final yellow jersey was disqualified
from the race was in 1904 when defending champion
Maurice Garin was stripped of his title when it was
judged he had taken a train during the race, rather than completing the full route.



who amongst us has not considered hopping on a train during a hard, hard race?
