Interesting that the max power is so low. I would have expected well over 1000w at some point.

Thor doesn't post his power data. Any power data shown on his charts is just random pickups from other riders. Garmin does publish power data for Ryder Hesjedal and few others though so you can get some idea. Training peaks also has published Juan Antonio Flecha's data for stage 9 up until he got side swiped.

Why go over 1000W if he can sit at 800W for four minutes, or whatever it is he can do?

pardon my ignorance, but why is the average moving speed higher than average speed? why would he be stopped? was this a wheel change? (even so doesnt seem there would be that much difference)

Could be pee break like Homebrew said, or was never shut off after ride, or while waiting before race started.

So if the stop were during the race (pee break or whatever), the avg speed would likely be more accurate than the moving average speed. If the computer was started before the race or not shutoff after the race, then the moving avg speed would be the more accurate number...

My gut sense is that the 22mph number sounds low for a flat stage (only one cat 4 climb). 26mph, on the other hand, sounds about right. Also there's a flat spot for a period in the speed data chart around hour 4 that looks a bit suspect. My hunch is that they may have factored into the avg speed but not the moving avg speed.

This is not the average speed not including stops. My take on it is this. The average speed is what it is. If you do the time and distance math you get 22.2 mph average speed for the whole race. But the actual speed fluctuates during the race. Going uphill it is much slower and going downhill it is much faster. The computer probably takes a time sample of actual speed a few times a second and averages these times together. This is probably the average moving speed. So in order to get the 22.2 overall speed average. He had to be going 26.5 most of the time. What this means is that most of the time he was riding at about 26.5 mph not including steep hills or fast descents. Which is about what his speed would be on flats and slight uphill grades.

Christian Vande Velde's Garmin data includes power, cadence, heart rate. His stage 8 data is pretty interesting as that stage was pretty tough and included several big climbs:

Thor's time for that stage was 3:38 so I'm figuring that flat line was the bike sitting by itself and the subsequent movement (and temp change) was the bike in a truck getting moved to the next start point.

With that max speed, they won't be publishing his wattage numbers either

Not a very good advertisement for Garmin with all the data being all over the place.

It's a really good thing Farrar didn't have a flux capacitor on his bike for stage three. If he had gone back in time when he hit 88MPH there's no way he would have won that stage, being in an alternate dimension and all...
