I suppose "beast" is relative when you juxtapose someone like Huhsovd with Quintana, but the only true beasts are on the track.

Classic KWalker. Wouldn't expect any less.

This is not a good thing!

Luckily in the road cycling world thigh size does not matter.

Indeed. The more dweeb like and wimpy you look to normal people the faster you are likely to be.

Maybe for GC/climbers. But wouldn't say that is the case for sprinters.

How are you grouping Farrar in with people that actually win?

a dude with moustache
a dude with a saddle too low
a skinny dude persistently looking down even on an easy "ride", do you still think he's riding "driven" by watt numbers? :mrgreen:

They are grouped by thigh size. :D

How low they hold their heads in a sprint is a perfect predictor of general ranking on those riders (I'll call Kittell & Cavendish a tie).

Interestingly, rode with Hushovd during the 2010 World Champs lead up and he looked about the same on TV (read: not far off the size of a regular human being).

Also saw a lot of Fabian, he was a good size too. And with massive quads. Also a good size for a 'regular human'.

The rest were exceedingly thin. Especially Freire (amazed how short he really was).

I found Petacchi quite small when I met him. Lance was shorter than thought too. Typical of people on TV really. It adds ten pounds, as the saying goes.
Ulle looked smaller too. It was end of season so he was fit.
Exceedingly thin does define most!
