TdF Team Classification

by gillerz960   July 19, 2011  


Looking at the team classification times and individual times for the Tour de France, the numbers do not seem to add up, does anyone know why?

For example, the top 3 Europcar riders have a time of 207 42 42 (individual times of 69 00 56; 69 10 49; 69 30 57) however the team has an official time of 206 39 38.

I thought the TTT may have something to do with it, but I cannot find anyway that it fits in, the time by the way was 25 38.

It is important really, but is just annoying.

Thanks in advance

Team time = 1st 3 finishers from each team in each stage.

So if you have team times from each stage it will add up. But individual times no the do not add up.
