Fans of Mr Froome will next be able to catch him riding at the Dream to Cure Ride in Vancouver, Canada on September 23.
If you fail to make it there then try the Japan Cup Cycle Road Race on October 15.
The Land of the Rising Sun has been a happy hunting ground for Froome throughout his storied career.
Who can forget him storming to victory with Team Konica Minolta during Stage 6 to Izu during the 2007 Tour of Japan?
Here's hoping for more similar success.
 
the calendar of the former champion gives the feeling of being a vacation plan by a travel agency that the program of a cycling star that has won four titles in the Tour de France. Or isn't it? If we look at it with magnifying glass, Australia, Rwanda, Switzerland or the Czech Republic have been the countries where Froome has looked dorsal."
Nice Vacation Plan with a bonus of 5 million

I loved that video. Its a shame we never get to see much of his personality, hes always seemed one of the more normal people in the peloton.
normal?

Chris Froome had two unusual pets: a pair of pythons. They needed feeding, and their meals had to be alive. Mice at first, then rats. But as they grew they needed something more filling. So he raided the rabbit hutches in the kindergarten across the road.
 
'chris froome let childhood pet die of starvation' isn't much of an improvement...
It’s a night and day difference when he could have released them or just fed them more rats. But no, breaking and entering in the middle of the night, stealing, and feeding your classmates pet’s is the same. At least in the US that’s multiple crimes, the former not so much.
 
Chris Froome behaving like a fun, carefree gentleman is as sincere as Jeffrey Dahmer would have been if he helped an elderly woman cross the road.

I mean there's the well documented snake incidents (pretty psychotic stuff, all things considered), there's the identity theft incident in 2006 which got him a foothold in Europe to begin with (one of his very first felonies he got away with), the Mortirolo incident when he held onto a motorbike in the 2010 Giro (he did get caught for that one) & everything else.

Not a good guy. But he is a good contract negotiator, apparently.

Bentley should strike back and make a very loud commercial in which Froome gets run over by a car.
"If you can no longer win a GT, then just buy one instead. Introducing the all-new Bentley Continental GT: Cheaper than Chris Froome and much better on the road".

Throw in a few references to car repairs as well, like "unlike Chris Froome, when you smash up your Bentley you can get it repaired, good as new... & it keeps its value too!"

I mean let's be nasty here, properly. Those bunnies demand justice.

We shouldn't be praising the car too much either though. It's like if you took a Ferrari engine and put it inside the body of present day Carlos Betancur instead of the one he had 10 years ago.

Bentley should overtake Froome on a Mountain.
"Make sure you have an engine that performs"
"We don't deceive our customers"
"Our car costs a fraction of 5 million"
"Better performance, lower costs"
