Tour de France Stage 2

The TTT (Team Time Trial) of 22,5km was covered in approximatly 24 minutes with general wattages by the riders in the 450 – 550 range. Individual efforts at the front of the group are generally 600 – 800 watts. Calorie consumption for this would be in the 400 range as the efforts are so high (@ VO2 Max) that glycogen would be the main fuel. This type of effort is all about suffering, suffering and suffering as much as one can for the duration of the effort.
