  42. 42. CYCLINGIn the Tour de France the rider who finishes last, rather than dropping out along the way, is accorded a distinction. Riders may compete to come last rather than just near the back. Often the rider who comeslast is remembered, while those a few places ahead are forgotten. The revenue the last rider will generate from later appearance fees can be greater than had he finished second to last, although this was more true when riders still made much of their income from post-Tour criteria. The phrase referring to the competitor in last place in Tour de Francecomes from the French words for the object hung on the caboose of a railway train, which conductors would look for in order to make surenone of the couplings had become disconnected.

Inall, he took 1,109 first-class wickets with a bowling average of 10.32 Hewas also a fine batsman (4,140 first-class runs with a batting average of 14.12, an average which was very good for the time).
