Awesome legs, yea, but where is the symmetry?

Its Sean Yates, by the way.

The leg on the right is not Sean Yates's. They must have been standing at an angle.
I agree - 2 different riders.outofthesaddle

Leg on left has Giordana shorts and leg on right looks like Pearl Izumi.

Look at the knees... they are a pair... 1 right, 1 left.

Also look at the shorts, they are Giordana's, not Pearl's.
The Giordana logo is on the inside right thigh, the other thing you are seeing is the O from Motorola on the outside left thigh, not the Pearl "P" logo. The M is obscured by the pole of the fence.

I can explain the shorts, but I can't explain his legs, man that's just plain wierd!

This link has a couple more pics as well as a bio for Sean. The pic on the left, although nowhere near the detail of the one in the link above, shows just how vascular Sean's legs (leg???) are. You can see it in his upper calf in the pic on the upper left.

Either way, Sean was one helluva rider!

Maybe he had lost muscle in that left leg due to an injury? (nm)jtferraro

Has more of his weight on the right leg....Lowend

Also, you are comparing the inside of one leg to the outside of the other.

as it features Sean Yates and in a recent photo one can see the same leg "veinage" going on even when he's seated. I've noticed quite a few guys (esp. as they get older) ,cyclists as well as runners, whose legs get that same, almost frightening, vascular look.
