If the numbers are right, either there was some sort of latent factor or the peloton is on jet fuel this year.
Well, it's hardly the only super performance so far. It's been a fast year.
Fair enough, but I'm not sure that results in a week long stage race are indicative of a racer form. Riders use them for different purposes.

His performance was very similar to Alpe 2013 and he was very young at the Tour.
He was, but he was climbing incredibly well in that last week on Alpe d' Huez (he was the strongest of the favourites) and obviously the stage he won to Semnoz, beating Froome and J-Rod with Contador 3 minutes down the mountain.

Jens says this was the same as Froome psm, which is incredible really. I don't think Nairo has that much more room to improve until he reaches his peak. It means that effectively all the top 5 were doing 6w/kg or thereabouts. They are all in great shape. The Giro is still open I think.
Froome at PSM and Ax3 managed to put at least a minute into the next best rider though.

In the end, it's the relative performance that counts, how much better you are than the others. I remain skeptical how useful it is to compare w/kg across climbs and races. If we teleport today's Quintana into the PSM stage, does he finish s.t with Froome? Perhaps. Teleport this Giro's Quintana into the 2015 Tour and I think he'll finish where he did back then at PSM. Or perhaps only 30 seconds down. He might have reached a new level this year.
 
He looked really good on the bike. You could see that he was feeling good. Maybe he improved a little bit compared to his best moments of the past but not by much if we go with the data.

The difference with Quintana is not his power output in climbs like yesterday. The difference is that he can put that same power output (6-6.2 watts/kg) in the third week of racing. Is simple. very hard to do.

Quintanas time of 40:15 meas he would have done Alpe in 38:50 if we assume the same weather conditions. Make of it what you will.
I will make nothing of your comment because it is not supported with any backing for your claim.

Well Dumoulin's velon data was this:


Note: this was just the attack bit (from 5km to 3km approx)

This was Quintana


In pure power output Dumoulin is looking good for the TT.
A good prediction supported by data. Well done. Interesting that according to those tables Dumoulin was 6 secs faster than Quintana over the last 5km of Blockhaus.

SeriousSam said:
I doubt they completed the last 5km in about 7 minutes.
Obviously the distance isn't right - 5km in less than 7mins on that climb is physically impossible. But the indicator of TT results was spot on and is there any accurate verification of the times over the last 5k of Blockhaus as that would be a useful indicator in predicting TD's chances of holding on to Milan or not.

Minimal gaps to the other though. Entire field was quick today. Short __/ stage after an active recovery sprint stage with Movistar setting a sharp tempo from the bottom of the climb.

The ridiculousness of Dumoulin's time is probably only equaled in that list by the presence of Moreno Argentin!
