Team Sky have released some of Chris Froome’s performance data at the Tour de France. This is in an effort to end doping speculation. The team boss Sir Dave Brailsford saying he wants people “to be able to judge for themselves”.
Froome, 30, leads the race but has had to defend himself against accusations of using performance-enhancing drugs.
On Sunday, a commentator on French TV questioned his dominant Stage 10 win.
“We thought we’d give people concrete numbers and facts,” said Brailsford.
On Tuesday - the race’s second rest day - Brailsford invited Team Sky’s head of performance Tim Kerrison to reveal the real numbers behind Froome’s display at La Pierre-Saint-Martin.
It took place on 14 July and saw Froome finally launch a devastating attack with 6.4km left that culminated with the Team Sky rider winning the stage. And as a result also taking significant time out of all his major rivals.
