Would Mike Hall "win" the tdf?
Your scenario doesn’t make sense, You have the tour riders riding the tour at between 80 and 160 miles per day (or some such) and a single guy riding the same route but in 200 mile per day segments. Of course the 200 miles per day rider would finish sooner.Posted 4 years ago
Step away from the alcohol you’re obviously consuming. You’ve had enough.molgripsSubscriber
Aren’t the mountains on the Tour route bigger than those on the TDR?
And in any case, the stages don’t start where the previous one left off, so it wouldn’t make any sense. He’d have to ride one stage, get the bus to the next one, then ride say half of it and then camp out. Possible but bonkers.
You might manage riding two in one day though, if keen. He’d probably manage more than 200 miles a day on tarmac, on a top end road bike and with no luggage I reckon. And someone handing him bags of food.Posted 4 years ago
Now you’re on to something! The GDMBR is not an overtly technical route and I suppose a tweak to a pro riders training would be all they’d need to prepare for it (the self supporting aspect aside, I doubt they’d like roughing it). That’s an interesting thing to think about.Posted 4 years agocchris2louMember
