maillot à pois rouges: Christophe Rinero

Christophe Rinero wore the polka-dots jersey
for 4 stages, first French rider overall (fourth place)
and best climber.

The 1998 Tour is infamously known as the Festina Affair. In the mayhem that endured the race found a way to carry on. For the first time in Tour history, riders refused to start stage 12 and the race was nearly prevented from reaching Paris. Marco Pantani, the great climber, decisively beat Jan Ullrich on the climb to Les Deux Alpes.

The Pirate won the Giro in June, and now... the Tour!
