if you look at European pros up close they do have a lot of vains on the legs. A combination of very low fat and increased capilaries in the muscles.

reminicent of the old Coppi-Bartali Story of old. Where Bartali in his constant quest to figure out Coppi's power had one of his team riders follow closely upon the heels of Coppi on a climb...he believed when COppi tired a vein protruded from his calf. When the vein came out...the rider would scream "the vein...the vein..." and Bartali attacked. I don't think it worked...I don't think it was the achilles heel of Coppi. Great stories of old though.
