Skinny White Boys



Check out this portrait of Iban Mayo during the 2003 Tour de France, reminds me of a post from back in August, "Someone Feed Tristan". If you are currently training to be the next American hopeful for the Tour, I recommend printing this picture out and posting it on your fridge.



Here is another polka dot jersey at his finest, the Great Dane in the '05 Tour. (Thanks JB for the pic)

Ah the sacrifices....



So Zack's team truck is over at Kustom Kar Audio getting some loving from Clay and JBL, leaving him fully committed to the commuter bike. Today temps dropped to 0 degrees and look who shows up at my doorstep!

Want to stay modivated in the off season.... Check this out.

That pic of Mayo is an eye opener, but this one of the great Dane from the 05 Tour is just flat scary.

RideOn

Skinny, yes. Dangerously thin - no. The riders still have an adequate fat percentage...

But is that kind of physique optimum for technical off road races? I know that the Great Dane was also a mountain bike champion but in general do you think some more upper body muscles are better for mountain bike racing?

I'm pretty sure that Rasmussen had more upper body strenght when he was at this best on the mountain bike circuit.
