But taken cumulatively over 21 stages in 23 days, it adds up. Even the flat, relatively straightforward Stage 6 had over 3,200 feet of climbing and stage winner Andre Greipel burned 3,000 calories despite being sheltered in the pack until the final sprint.

Not every day is like that. On Stage 17, Rogers finished in the bunch, over 14 minutes down. His Tinkoff Saxo teammate, Rafal Majka, did the reverse, losing 24 minutes the day of Rogers stage win to save energy before launching his winning attack on Stage 17.

Despite immediate, intense pain, he willed himself to his feet. I have to stand up, he said, and so, finally, he did. His jersey was shredded, his helmet broken and the race was disappearing up the road. So he did what any racer in his situation does: He chased.

TrainingPeaks tale of Michael Rogers win on Stage 16 (the same day as Hollenstein odyssey) tells a similar quantified tale of endurance. Rogers was in the break for six hours. Over the 237.5km stage, he burned 6,639 calories and climbed 9,594 feet. On the crucial Port de Bal climb where he made his attack, he averaged 428 watts for just over 35 minutes. That in line with standard Functional Threshold Power profiles for WorldTour cyclists. (For comparison, the average cycling enthusiast FTP is about 170 watts.)

As SRM pointed out, Trek rider Haimar Zubeldia 60 minute power for the final climb to Chamrousse was below his personal best, but he still lost only two minutes to stage winner Vincenzo Nibali; essentially, even the riders at the front were hurting.

Stage 13, in the Alps, was the first truly hot day of the race. Average temperatures the first 12 stages were around 75 degrees; Stage 13 high was 98. As Trek Factory Racing director Josu Larrazabal pointed out, that boosted heart rates 2 3 percent and sped dehydration.

What he learned there and later, in the hospital, ended his race. He spoke with team and race doctors, and was taken to the hospital in Saint Gaudens. The message was clear: He had to stop.

Up front it not much easier, as the physiological demands of a top finish take their toll even when riders stay upright. TrainingPeaks and SRM both publish power meter figures from the Tour. Two days stand out.

Hollenstein finished Stage 16 in the gruppetto, almost 27 minutes behind Rogers. He dismounted and limped to the mobile medical lab.

He touched my handlebar and on my body and the front wheel went away. Hollenstein went down hard.

For much of Stage 16, Hollenstein rode in agony. He said that other riders and team directors gave Nike Roshe Slip On White him help and encouragement. When asked what kept him going, he answered, was a lot of, go to Paris, he said.

He doesn know exactly when he finally caught back on to the bunch but said he knows that about 10km before the feed zone, he was in the peloton. The feed zone on Stage 16 was at 123.5km; reports indicate Hollenstein chased alone for at least 60km so, given his own recollection, it was probably more than that.

my girlfriend, my family, teammates, friends. I fight and say, go like this and never give up. For two and a half weeks in the Tour, you have a lot of things in your head. You fight it in the shit weather, you fight in the hot weather, you fight sometimes with the mountains. You say, yeah I here and I want to go to Paris. I think that why I stay and fight.

Talansky dismounted his bike and sat on a guardrail, tears streaming down his face, as director Robbie Hunter calmly told him that the decision to continue was his alone.

To avoid the time cut, he had to get back on before the final climb. peloton was already finished, he said, the gruppetto forming. He had to get in that lifeboat. was my chance. All the guys gave me motivation and on the last climb, I just had 11 kilometers to the top, and I fought for it.

Broken bones have been common in this year race, taking out Chris Froome, Alberto Contador, and Hollenstein team leader, Mathias Frank. Contador crashed on the descent of the third climb on Stage 10, but continued on to the top of the next climb before dropping out because of intense pain. The cause: a fractured tibia.

´╗┐How Tough Are Tour de France Riders

Dehydration has several effects on performance. It lowers VO2 max (maximal oxygen intake) and limits the body ability for intense exercise. A 2001 Danishstudy found that a 4 percent drop in body weight reduced VO2 max capacity by 6 percent. In plain English: you can ride as hard before you blow up, so you have to back off.

It was the start of the Tour de France Stage 16, the longest day in the race at 237.5km, and with three major climbs and a harrowing descent to the finish in Bagneres de Luchon, a breakaway was a likely bet to succeed. Hollenstein, who rides for wild card invitee IAM Cycling, wanted to be in that break.

Hollenstein story is remarkable and yet not exceptional. It happens every day in the Tour to some degree to some rider. Over 21 stages, racers battle back from crashes, fatigue, and illness to earn the chance to ride another day. The goal for many isn a stage win or a top placing or, sometimes, even to help their team leader. The goal is just to finish.

Most riders, of course, aren going to be like Rogers or Greipel, winning stages. They not going to be like Zubeldia, battling for a top 10 overall finish. But they keep fighting.

Many teams weigh riders before and after a stage to get an idea of how much fluid they lost; almost all weight loss over such a short period is water weight. Larrazabal said that average weight loss for the Trek riders was three percent; two racers were over four percent. For a relatively big rider like Jens Voigt, that average loss is about 5 pounds, 7 if he lost four percent.
