Do the pro's release their performance stats for public viewing ?

Pretty new to enjoying the sport of cycling..

Watched the TdF this year, and every rider had their little computer gathering data at the underside of their saddle.

Do they release this info ever for public viewing / fans? I think it makes a great addition to the sport.

I watched this YouTube of Froome in the TdF in 2013, and it was showing his stats on a climb.. Found it very interesting.. Especially that his HR was only at 160max... even when he was putting out 400+ watts during the climb. Must have a pretty larger ticker !

I heard that Robert Gesink made his number available and that Thibout Pinot released 6 years worth of data although not sure if he did during the tour.

Most teams seem reluctant, claiming competitive advantage.

Some do. Some don't. See Strava.

Oh, and that "little computer under their saddle" was a GPS transponder, not a computer per se. It was an experiment (by UCI?) to overlay stats onscreen for specific riders. It didn't give personal, private info such as watts.

& a rider or team could "sandbag" by showing low #'s? I think power meters are a pretty cool concept though. Obviously a great training aid for racers--in future might become cheap so even casual riders could see exactly how much work done.

Here's a list from July:
A segment of professional cycling fans are interested in performance numbers. Am I half the rider so-and-so is? (no). How do they manage their efforts? How do the tactics play out - are they really saving up to 30% of their energy by riding in position X, etc., etc.? And, as a byproduct, what is normal performance among elite athletes in the biggest stage race?

Some riders talk about their ride data like it's the secret formula for Coke or KFC. Other riders routinely publish their ride data on the world wide web. And some publish some rides, but not all (e.g., Uran).

I believe there is an upside to data publication because of fan engagement. There may be downsides -- other teams have more evidence whether a rider was taking it easy yesterday or pushed to the limit, for instance.

I'm curious about why some riders are open to publishing their data. The most elite riders are not publishing. Yes, a 2014 TdF GC podium, yes top 10 candidates, yes a 2014 Road World Champion. I've seen more from English-speaking riders (I don't know whether I'm missing sites more frequented by persons more comfortable in other languages). But not this year's top 5, not the top sprinters, not the top climbers.

Is it related to age, where a younger rider is more accustomed to social media? Is it team management, discouraging their top riders from publishing lest they reveal trade secrets? Or the riders individually? Or is it just a language barrier for some riders who don't want to engage via Strava?

Whatever it is, a significant fraction of the 198 who began in Utrecht have published TdF ride data during the TdF. Here is the data I've seen:
