Helmets - what do they do with them?(3 posts)

Helmets - what do they do with them?MaRider

When the riders get rid of their helmets on the final climb, what do they do with them?
Is there a "helmet collection" official car?
Do they hand it to their team car? Give it to domestiques to carry back to the car?
I can't imagine they would through away $200 piece of equipment on the side of the road, especially since they would have to go through all the refitting routine of a new helmet etc.

I am new to the 'tour', why are they allowed to discard the helmet during this part of the ride?
