Making list of Height, Weight stats on Top RidersSwat Dawg

I have been looking around at some of the Pics for the Giro, international, and domestic races and I have seen some guys that are not the paperthin facsimile of Lance or Tyler. Some of these guys have some meat on their bones. Whatever you know put it out there, cause I'm wonderin' if I can still be descent at the bike racing thing without trying to drop all my upper body weight and looking like a anemic anorexic whose just gone throug chemotherapy. In particular what's the data on Cipo, and does anybody know the info on the domestic rider Mike Tillman (Schroeder Iron)? I saw a pic of him on and he's as big as a football player. Anyway, throw what you know out there. Thanks

A lot of the top cyclists do look somewhat solid and not paper thin like imagined; however, go to a race where there are top cyclists and you'll see that they are damn tiny. I was looking at a website this year that got a hold of some pro Mapei gear to sell, it was hilarious, I think they had one medium jersey and the rest were small and even some x-small. Some of the podium girls tower over these guys.
I think Cipo is around...Dwayne Barry

6'2", 175 lbs, just saw van Petegem is 5'9", 154 lbs, but the thing about bike racing is there is something for everyone. Especially here in the US b/c of all the crits you don't have to ne so lean to do well.

Lightening up does help though. I weighed 205 at the start of the season. Am down to about 185 now and dont think I'll lose much more than that. Hills hurt a lot worse when you are carrying the weight of an extra bike on your body.
