I just happened upon that stage 4 freak show a couple days ago going through highlights since I was away during the first half of the tour and wow. That was another contender for biggest eyebrow raiser of the tour. Even more surprising is that once again it wasn’t even just WVA but half the Jumbo team, and they even dropped Roglic, who was still fully healthy at that point (I think?). Then WVA peeling even more time against the entire chasing peloton?If the data is legit, the 1-5min powers are nuts. Especially when combined with the rest of the power curve.
Based on Thomas' alleged 730w for a minute on TDF stage 4, I quickly back-of-the-enveloped WVA's one minute around 11+w/kg @75kg there. Given that Jumbo's attack lasted longer and was followed by a 10min solo TT at 60+kph, it probably was not a full all out 1min, but in or at least near the ballpark given these circumstances. Bonkers stuff, really.
