I really loved your clip.

Nice work, though IIRC, competitors are not allowed to ride backwards on the course to reach a teammate in need of assistance. At best, they can stop and wait for them to catch up.

SurfingBullDog says:

This is a great explanation of the race, but I think it should have mentioned the effect of doping. Doping has been a part of the race since the very beginning.

I brought in some runners in from Africa that finished fourth through fifteenth place I think they'd done better had they had bicycles
