Without wind, the climb was done at an estimated power output of 5.65 W/kg. A headwind would push it up towards 6 W/kg. At this point, it's worth saying that Chris Anke Sorensen (who we've been following all Tour) rode Alp d'Huez at 5.3 W/kg, and finished the climb in 47:10. So just over five minutes off. Within the relatively linear region of this graph, those 5 minutes are worth about 0.7 W/kg, so that puts the top climbers at ± 6 to 6.1 W/kg. An alternative method is to take the Sorensen performance (47:10 and 5.3W/kg) an estimate the headwind and then derive the power output for the faster time of 41:30. Turns out that it it predicts a headwind close to the yellow line shown above, and so the race leaders are climbing at an estimated range of 6.0 to 6.1 W/kg. And that's a highest case scenario, I suspect it to be lower. This is exactly what I'd expect of this level of ...
