I'm wondering if someone can point me to a website, publication, book, etc. that explains the basics of pro racing. I have questions about these multi stage races, like how the whole yellow jersey thing works. How is the "score" kept.......I don't even know what questions to ask! All I know is that I'm confused. I need a course in the rules of engagement and the nuances of the sport. Like why does the commentator refer to some of the riders as sprinters when they're all in the same LONG DISTANCE race?
I'd like to have some kind of understanding of it before the Tour de France!
Thanks in advance, Bob
