I'm a newbie to TDF, so pardon the ignorance. I have lots of "I wonder why" questions. Anyone know of TDF FAQ 101 website?

Does the TDF winner win a trophy or money or anything tangeble they can put in the trophy case? How about the stage winners? Are there daily prizes and awards? What's the deal with the stuffed lion?

Finally, I might be in Europe next summer. What should I do if I want to see a stage? Is it first come first served and just show up? Are there travel agencies that shuttle you to/from the race course. Any info to get me started would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance and I'm sure I'll pester you guys with more newbie questions.
