  1. Hi Mihai,

    Any hint about the Grappa Velon data? I've been the only one wondering how is it that Tom's watts are very similar to Nibali's. I can't understand that. A typo? Even if flat stretches were included, and that makes the power output a bit more similar, the difference in weight between Nibali and Dumoulin should mean that's pretty much impossible that they climb at the same speed some 8.5 km at nearly 8% with a ~1.5% difference in final average wattage.
    Could you notice something different in very situation during that part of the race? Am I losing something, like with the Oropa missing second?

    Thank you for any insight.


    1. Hi
      I'm not convinced in Velon's data accuracy so I can't comment.
