Is it just me or does this picture look really Contador really that small or Sanchez just huge?!? I mean I realise Bertie may be sitting on his top tube but still...

    He is a big lad, remember seeing him on Alpe D'huez at the 08 Tour, he was doing no handed in the bunch with 5k's to go and looked massive then!
    Don't rake up my mistakes, i know exactly what they are.

    HA that's a crazy pic, he does look massive; according to Wikipedia Sanchez is 6 ft 1.5inch tall and Contador is 5ft 9.5inch tall. So as you say, put the fact that Contador is sitting on the top tube and bingo... giant Sanchez!! Still agreed does look odd :lol:

    A salutary lesson in the dangers of doing too much HGH perhaps? :wink:

    Sanchez is slightly nearer the camera than Contador - so that's another factor. Apparently it's an old anglers trick - hold the fish out in front of you. I have a photo circa 1930 of my Grandad holding a salmon alongside his 9 year old daughter (my auntie) with a small trout. Grandad holds the salmon at arm's length, and my auntie has her fish close to her body. The effect - the salmon looks huge, the trout looks to be a sprat.
