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).

You also forget that I am American so our definition of normal and these weights is quite different. Hushovd's weight is the mean weight of females 5'2"-5'5" in the South.

Yeah, generally Americans idea of 'normal' weight is 20-30 pound overweight.

Maybe BMC can show up to next years TdF rather that TdP. I think they missed the memo on which race was the important one.

So true. Even the sprinters are skinny compared to [US] normal people.
