Since so many colorful figures are not allowed to ride the TDF and people have to fight for those precious spots, would it make sense to allow certain big name riders to participate as individuals and each is allowed to bring two domestiques, but their teams won't be part of the team rankings?

Have a qualifying race. Then, take the top 20 riders and have them pick teams as the other 200 riders are lined up by the backstop.
