L'ALPE D'HUEZ, France (AP) - The team of Tour de France leader Chris Froome has released his performance data from six races, including this Tour, to a French newspaper as it seeks to dispel any suspicions of doping.

At the request of Team Sky, sports daily L'Equipe did not publish the information it said included data showing how much power Froome generated and his climbing times from 18 ascents.

L'Equipe said it had the data analysed by Fred Grappe, a French sports scientist and a coach with the FDJ.fr team. It said he found "no anomalies."

The data was collected from 18 climbs at the Spanish Vuelta of 2011 and '12, this year and last year's Tour, the Dauphine race he won this year and the 2013 Tirreno-Adriatico.
