Interesting: Preparing for TDF
From looking at the above figure, it is evident that there are plenty of orange cells, that is, races where a rider has finished in the top five and/or won a stage. The most impressive set of results is that of Alberto Contador, the 2009 Tour winner, who that year figured in every race he entered. Two of the races he entered and didn’t win were Paris-Nice and the Vuelta Castilla y Leon. In the former he won two stages and finished 4th overall and would have won the overall had he not famously bonked on the penultimate stage allowing his compatriot Luis Léon Sanchez to charge away for the victory.
