    Live power data from TdF

    http://www.trainingpeaks.com/2007tourdata.asp

    You can see real-time power data from:
    Markus Burghardt (T-Mobile) >>
    Patrik Sinkewitz (T-Mobile) >>
    Ralf Grabsch (Milram) >>
    Egoi Martinez (Discovery) >>
    Sven Krauss (Gerolsteiner) >>
    Sergio Paulinho (Discovery) >>
    Christian Knees (Milram) >>
    Gregory Rast (Astana) >>
    Teamcar T-Mobile (T-Mobile) >>
    Teamcar Gerolsteiner (Gerolsteiner) >>

    Pretty cool.

    Yeah just looked at Christians WKO files and OUCH!!

    One thing I notce is the very low highend wattage. I guess he isn't sprinting.

    Those power files are amazing. I have averaged 240 watts for 5 hours but my ride file looked WAY different than Vandevelde's (my ride was the epitome of steady effort; his was defined by spurts) and my normalized power was a paltry 250 watts compared to his 306.

    Burghardt is in the break right now and it's interesting to see his power increase when he takes a pull, go to zero when he rotates back, and spike as he hops back into line.
