Example for the pros is Milan-San Remo being nearly 300km. I doubt there's any pro doing that in training but the early to mid part of the race is flat so it involves a lot of coasting in the wheels. Unless you're using a power meter i wouldn't even bother trying to guess TSS for a given ride.
TSS for Milano San-Remo is a lot over 400. For example Jay Thomson power analysis, TSS was 438, Duration: 7:13:52, Distance: 294km, Normalized Power: 312 watts, Average Power: 264 watts, Energy Expenditure: 6865 calories.

Not quite sure what that's trying to say here so I'll just put out a power profile of Sacha Modolo who came 14th this year. Relatively low TSS of 324 and super low average of 185w, normalised 254w https://www.trainingpeaks.com/blog/anal ... -san-remo/
