Team Sky plans to release part of Chris Froome’s power data to the UK anti-doping agency and the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF), Reuters reported Monday. Froome has become the subject of doping allegations since he outpaced his competitors in Stage 10 of the Tour last Tuesday, according to VeloNews.

“I think we’ll have a look at it tonight, and for the rest day [Tuesday] we will just release an average cadence, average power,” Team Sky manager Dave Brailsford told reporters on Monday.

Froome is currently 3 minutes and 10 seconds ahead of second-place rider Nairo Quintana of Colombia. American rider Tejay van Garderen is in third, 22 seconds behind Quintana.
