Froome to release tests results
LONDON (AFP) – Britain's Tour de France champion Chris Froome has said data from physiological tests that he underwent earlier this year will be published on December 3 by men's magazine Esquire UK.
Froome made the announcement via Twitter on Saturday after studying the proposed cours- es for next year's Olympic Games in Rio.
''As promised, I will be making the results and analysis of the independent testing I did after #TDF2015 available to the public,'' said Froome on Twitter.
He said sports scientists had completed analysis of tests done when he was a member of the International Cycling Union-funded World Cycling Centre in 2007 and those done at the GSK Human Performance Lab in August.
The Cycling News website said Froome's announcement followed a ''contentious Twitter exchange'' between his wife, Michele, and journalists Matt Slater and Paul Kimmage regarding a delay in the data's release.
Froome and Team Sky, for whom he rides, were both criticised during this year's Tour de France when data which appeared to show Froome's power, cadence, and heart-rate values from his stagewinning ride on Mont Ventoux in the 2013 Tour was posted online and later made into a video.
