The British cycling outfit Team Sky released some of Chris Froome's performance data at the Tour de France in an effort to end doping speculation, with boss Sir Dave Brailsford saying he wants people "to be able to judge for themselves".

Froome leads the race but has had to defend himself against accusations of using performance-enhancing drugs especially after a devastating attack at the end of the 10th stage.

Froome isn't sure releasing the data will end the debate surrounding his performances, but said they're trying to be open and transparent.

"We seem to cop a lot of speculation and a lot of doubts around our performances, why those same levels of doubt are not being cast upon similar performamces, from other GT (Grand Tour) contenders, why is it only us?"
