Were they climbing mountains. If you google for Lance Armstrong Tour DeFrance 2004 you should retrieve a result that talks about one of the Mountains showing up in the Tour De France for the first time in (30years i think)?
No expert, but I am sure that average climbing, average drop, road conditions, wind conditions are all things that play heavily into the Tour DeFrance.
On a side note it would be really interesting to find out where one stands approximately in comparison to accomplishing something like the Tour DeFrance. I mean how does one even get drafted for it etc. How does one know that one is even ready to get drafted for it?
