Not exactly a road, but close.
I'm 2Kg overweight form my seasons form, so I know, I'm too fat.

Ferrari said I'm too fat ;)
Jokes aside I'm 2Kg more offseason than I was when racing last season in my top form.

but you are ripped kasparz, so does the extra weight matter?

It doesn't matter a lot at this part of the season, but as the bigger races on the calendar comes along it is almost vital to be at the right weight for riders on Kasparz's level.

I am 3-4 kg above my raceweight at the moment, but I could never dream of maintaining that weight over a longer period of time. It wouldn't be healthy for me.
