comment Why aren't Tour de France riders going any faster?
I didn't write that the distance has regressed to the mean, I wrote that some years it's 'tougher', others 'easier'. Tough and effective doping control over the last 5 or so years leading to a slower average speed is borne out in the first chart. Your chart suggests an impressive correlation, but I can't help feel that the modern peloton would average around 40 or 50km/h (or possibly even higher) over the relatively flat 1903 course - due to the huge technological advantage.
