Hi,

maybe there's some sort of internet language barrier I don't know about.


Funny how you went for it when I said I wasn't having fun.... :wink:

As the Aussies would say: "No worries, mate"..... 8)

Cheers, :wink: (Note that I don't sign off with my usual "Ciao" thingie)

Don't worry, Cipo's skinsuit tomorrow will surely bring back the humor to this boring tug-of-war re: wittiness...and here I was thinking you meant the Dutch rider Harm Jansen...stoooooopid me. :oops:

How much does cipo weigh, and how tall is he?

I believe he's 6'3". If I were to guess his weight I'd put him at about 175.

Damn. He's really skinny.

He's probably closer to 200 after a bit of thought. He has some pretty big legs and I wouldn't say his upper body is slinder.

agree with the good doc - after having a good look at the pics on cyclingnews.com in his looooooooovely pink outfit, he's definitely closer to the 200 mark

You always look heavier in cycling clothing due to muscle definition. He's 189 and has about 78-80kg (175lbs) racing weight.

Below you can see that he's just as lean as any other cyclist:

I thought I saw at Velonews he was 75kg.

Guesses are guesses, though. As there is no way in hell that Ulrich could weigh 160, but that's what's in all the mags. :)

Ulrich I think is a little shorter. I was thinking he was around 6' even. And I was thinking that he had a more slinder build than Cipo. Wait...are we talking Ulrich in January or Ulrich in July....cuz there is a big difference you know. :lol:
