Best Answer

Tour the France is big business, much like NHL or NBA. Someone with (access to) plenty of money decides that running a cycling team would be nice, so he starts to recruit good riders, either from other teams or from talented amateurs spotted at less known races. When he has a team he contacts the race organizers, pay them a starting fee and then he and his team are in.
