peloton using real-time gps + powermeter data, and conclude that he was 5% faster than "the rest" on climbs.
The UCI closed the peephole that put such data on view (or was it a loophole) and now prevents publication of such data.
The UCI has not prevented publication of data. It has simply prevented live data feeds, which has more to do with media deals, than "covering up" the data. The data is available to anyone if the rider/coach/team choose to publish it.
Anyone who wants to know how fast riders climb just needs a watch. Don't need power meters or GPS for that.
