Huh. "hardcore" is putting it kindly and, even so, I call foul. For the full fleche experience I would expect the team to set up their trainers outside, at safe distance from one another, but where they could at least see one another and shout encouragement as needed. Without the full progression of 24 hours of light changes, temperature changes, rain, etc, and that last two hours of rest before the final push, it just wouldn't be a fleche. Count me out!
