What is the total weight a Tdf rider carries up the hill apart from his own bodyweight? The bike is around 7kg, maybe a bottle with some water.. What about helmet, clothes, shoes etc?
Weighing some of my own gear, and allowing some reduction because I'm not especially up to date ...
Helmet 350g to 400g
Shoes 300g to 350g
Outfit 350g to 400g, 100 to 200g more on a cold or wet day.
Misc 150g (sunnies, comms gear, etc)
Total... 1.15kg to 1.3kg, plus .1 or .2kg depending on conditions.
