...and would be interesting to see how much the decline has been in the great post-2009 years of Gesink's career.

I remember those files; I think I posted them here a long time ago but unfortunately I didn't make a copy. I linked to the img location without backing them up and now the original source has disappeared. I thought I saved them, but they appeared to be thumbnails. Since they were too pixelated, when you enlarge them, you couldn't read anything, so I deleted them. :(

EDIT> I did find them, and are uploaded here. However, they are thumbnails so I don't know if you'll be able to decipher the graphs in any way

Fine. You made me have to pull out my 20/10 vision.

On the scale on the left side of the images, in green is power. The numbers appear to up in increments of 112.5 (alternate between 113 and 112), and are 113, 225, 338, 450, 563, 675, 788. The grey line in between 450 and 338 is 394. You can use the 450 mark and the 394 line to get a rough sense of his interval power in 2007, and then mostly the 450 line to get a sense in 2008 and 2009. I can also read some of the actual averages. (For example, the last couple in 2007 read 404, 402; I see 442 and 438 for the 4th and 6th ones in 2008, maybe 441 or 447 for the last one in 2009. The heart rates max out between 175 and 179.

I can read off most of the numbers or at least get very close. So it appears in 2007 the average was ~408w, in 2008 ~441w and in 2009 ~451w.

These were 6x6 min tests. Interestingly, in 2009 Gesink won the Giro dell'Emilia and I remember calculating he probably put out ~460w on the final trip up in a tad under 6 minutes.
 
After 2009 I do remember he had even higher test values before Tour 2010 / Tour 2011 then the years before. But ofcourse we know what happened in 2011.
And after the leg break he's back at 2008/09 level. We'll see next year. For whatever magic team he'll ride :rolleyes:
