Esquire magazine has been chosen as the location where Chris Froome will reveal the results of his physiological testing on December 3

Chris Froome will release the results and analysis of his physiological testing in Esquire magazine on December 3.

The double Tour de France winner made the announcement on Twitter over the weekend, stating that the sports scientists had completed their analysis of his recent testing and that carried out at the World Cycling Centre in 2007.

Esquire may not be your first port of call for sporting news, given that it doesn’t have a section for sport on the home page of its website (it does have one for watches).

Froome’s testing this summer comes as a result of criticism and innuendo aimed at him during this year’s Tour de France, claiming that his performances were strong as a result of doping.

The Sky rider was forced to defend himself in the press after most stages of the race, during which he had to endure physical and verbal abuse.

Froome denied that the physiological testing was a way to prove he wasn’t doping, claiming that he merely wants to find out what makes him the athlete that he is.

    I really couldn’t care less what you believe, whether it is about Chris Froome or me or anyone else. Just don’t go accusing people you don’t know the first thing about of crimes for which you have zero evidence. Doing so is not clever; it is cowardly and destructive.

  • ummm…

    Funny, I’d say your comments would be just as idiotic if it was about any other cyclists as well!! Why does it hurt you so much that I, by default, don’t believe cycling/pro cyclists to be clean? I take no pleasure in assuming that the sport is still full of it. I’m indifferent, but when you look at the state of pro sports, cycling, HISTORY etc. then the only real way of interpreting the world and interacting in it is to have some skepticism. I’m not denying that chocolate tastes good or that a drink with the family over the holidays can be fun. That would be a hard sell. I merely state that your blind belief in these guys being clean, and attacking the skeptics makes you look very naive. To you the world is still flat. The sport has a few more years to prove itself before we buy in. Don’t be such a suck up to your “countryman” from Kenya. I saw a lot of losers do that stateside to LA, and now they feel like tools.

    I doubt very much that Chris Froome needs my protection. Anyway, this has nothing to do with Chris Froome; your comments would be just as idiotic if they were about any other cyclist.

    I dunno what you libel laws are. Also, I said that he is in the company of all the greats (all dopers) as far as abuse from fans go. It is a hazard of being an athlete, except in a sport like cycling where fans are closer, it can be quite nasty. As far as saying he is a doper, thats like saying humans like to f**k i.e. some humans may not like to f**k but they are few and far between. Please don’t protect this guy just because you are a fanboy. Have some self respect. I don’t know if he is a doper or not, but if I’m using common sense….

    You are libelling him right here if you are saying he is guilty of doping. And if that is not what you are doing, I don’t know what the point of your posts is. If you know something about Froome or his team you should say it. Otherwise you should shut up. I would love to see you saying this stuff to his face.

  • ummm…

    I dunno. If u look back at his own palmares and then u look back at cycling history – if you weigh all the facts. If you take into consideration his team and their history, then what you find is not absolute integrity or plausibility. SKY instill no more confidence in me than Astana, in most important ways. He has not been libelled as you know. Look at the definition. As far as piss? That isn’t nice, but appears to be the tradition in the sport; Merckx, LA etc., except the French, have had abuse. Froome is not remarkable in this sense. Although I will say it is WRONG to do so. It puts him into the company of some of the greatest dopers, this abuse.

  • ummm…

    I’d have to agree.

  • GoatHerd

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. If he ignored the innuendo he’d be criticised as well.

  • ummm…

    What? If he is trying to avoid looking like LA, then maybe he should avoid this sort of tactic. Me thinks thou dost protest too much.
