lsd, it will be interesting to see if the next two tours have decreasing average speeds as the "juice" of the quarantine (and therefor no testing) wears off.

Seriously, was this Tour fast? High average speed? It did seem to me like they went race fast instead of the steady train of the super teams much of the time but that often makes for in fact, slower averages as the slowdowns often cost more than is gained in the fast stuff.

Steady pace with little tactics in my mind could make things faster. Cooler September temperatures could make it easier to ride fast. Completely different race calendar. There’s just too many variables to judge.

The pace was definitely fast....but there also weren't as many high mountains until the end. Stages that finished w/ descents also helped.

But there is no denying that they set records up some climbs, beating the times set by -7 and others of his era.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!
