In 1933 an individual got on the podium of the TDF, so some of them were actually very good riders. Actually in 1933, Guiseppe Martano (riding as an individual) would have won the TDF if it was not for the time bonuses that were awarded to stage winners (2 minutes).
The individuals had to pay for their own meals, hotels, and arrange for their own travel. It must have taken an amazing commitment.
