...from a Spiegel article (my rough translation):

"Christian Vandevelde managed to average 5.7 Watts per Kg on the last climb, around 1 watt less than Lance Armstrong at 6.6."

So that's about a 15% difference. About the same as a 100 meter runner all the sudden running an 8.5.

When asked about the difference, Jonathan Vaughters replied:

"The way Lance Armstrong compulsively concerned himself with minute details in regards to materials, training, logistics, etc, we try to follow his example."

When asked how Lance isn't an example, he laughed and replied "Good question."
