Team Sky released some of Chris Froome's power data Tuesday as they seek to put to bed doping suspicions ahead of four grueling Tour de France stages in the Alps.Pierre Sallet's estimation of 425 watts for 71 kilos (5.98 watts per kilo) does not meet the actual data released by Team Sky's head of athlete performance.At 5.78 watts per kilo, as per Sky's data, Froome, who said Monday he weighs 67-68 kilos, produced around 390 watts in the climb to La Pierre St. Martin – much less than claimed by Sallet, who also deduced Froome's maximal aerobic power was 7.04 watts per kilo.
