    height - 180cm (another source says 184)
    weight - 88 kg (another source says 98, I hardly believe)

    body fat (%)- 11
    Max power, lab (W) - 2250
    Max power, track (W) - 2490
    Vertical jump 55 cm
    VO2max - 5,1 l/min
    MHR - 184
    Max aerobic power (FTP?) (W) – 370

    I wonder how he's able to push that mass for a kilo WR with so low FTP!

    ... because you don't ride a kilo at threshold.

    Max aerobic power is not FTP.
    From photos I've seen of Tournant, I'd believe the 98kg figure.
    Those max power numbers are mind-boggling. First thing I'm thinking is - how the heck do they keep from snapping things on the bike? From the pedal straps to the pedal axles to the crank arms to the bottom bracket, etc...

    A 21" (55cm) vertical jump? That's gotta be a miss-print. He's gotta be much more explosive than that. Suprised at the low (relatively) max heart rate. I'd like to see his weight-lifting numbers.

    yes the aussie track sprinters had to do 75cm vert leap to hit the talent ID mark, back in the Charlie Walsh days. So we were told on the coaching courses I attended.

    A kilo is ridden at a level WAY beyond someone's FTP. From what I've read (I don't have any data to back this up), the best in the world average around 1000 watts for a kilo effort.
