Isn't Caruso almost 10kgs heavier than Yates?
Yates certainly did less than 409 watts, because he is less heavier than yates. What matters is the watts per kilo, not the watts. So, if caruso did 409 and his weight is 67, 409÷67=6.1 w/kg.
Yates probably did less than 400 watts on this climb but that's because he weights just 60 kg.

Apparently someone did the same math as I did:

wtf? After almost 3 weeks, grueling days and he does this?
 
On climbing records they said thay yates climbed alpe di mera in 28min and 55 seconds, 9.1 km at 9.7%, at 6.5 w/kg. I don't think it was so much, certainly it was 6.3/6.4 w/kg for yates.

Yeah, that sounds a bit more "reasonable" and in line with the performance of the other riders.
Clearly a high level performance, but it has to be said that the gc riders took it really easy yesterday and had nice weather and a rather easy route before the final climb.

Don't think moderate ease or completely easy matters that much. They did do an average of 40kph on a mountain stage today, and Nieve was pacing the penultimate climb.

Yates also did most of the pacing on his own, and his estimated W/kg should be higher since he's ~58kg.

You're probaby right about moderate ease vs easy, the weather (low temperatures and rain) has probably a bigger effect.

Unbelievable numbers.

So, between 6.4 and 6.5 it seems. And by the time they arrived at the penultimate climb they were almost 10m ahead of the best foreseen time.

In other news, there's a shortage of terbutaline in that part of Italy.
If i'm right, the best performances last year and this year was pogi 6.5 w/kg on peyresourde in 25 mine30 s, pogi on prati di tivio 6.3 w/kg in a effort of 36 min, and hindley on piancavallo in a effort of 6.3 w/kg in 37 min. So this performance of today, is very good comparing with that performances.

Wasn't Pogacar on Prato di Tivo and Peyresourde calculated a bit higher than that? More like ~6.6? Note that Yates was the only one close to Pogacar on Prato di Tivo.

Yes, you're right, it was antoine vayeur that calculated not 6.6 w/kg but 6.7 w/kg by pogi on peyresourde, but it's was wrong once again, pogi put that stage on strava with the watts, and it was 6.51 w/kg.
