Piglets & cyclists :)

the best Breton rider wins a piglet. The prize always makes for a fun moment on the podium and serves as a reminder of the region’s farming traditions.

… the cyclist could hardly get the train home with a cow in tow so typically the award would be bought back off the cyclist for cash – the local farmers get publicity on the podium, and the rider returns with a fungible prize.
