If I wanted to learn more about Pro Tour races (like TDF) and how they work, what would be some good resources? Most of what I find is on the basic "this is what is happening" level, which is all good, but I'm wondering something beyond that - what the bike teams generally look like, what considerations are undertaken on each stage in planning, how does the strengths/weaknesses/current position in the race of each of the riders on the team come into play and so forth. For example (if this helps describe what I'm looking for), if there were a Tour De France video game equivalent to what the John Madden games are to football, what would it look like?
I found this and it answered a few of my questions, but I'm curious about a few more things.
Any good pointers to some good reading material?
