Is this normal for tour riders?
There's nothing to 'em... just skin and bone :shock:

    Maybe a bit more meat would make them a bit harder.

    Some studies have shown that the crazy weight loss of GC riders reduces bone density resulting in more fractures from pretty minor falls.

    Let's face it, it's hardly surprising that an endurance athlete burning thousands of calories a day and under strict dietary / nutritional control has extremely low body fat levels is it? Once they stop they'll soon look like Stephen Roche or Chris Boardman. Even in my own little world I put on 4 stone in a few years after stopping cycling regularly.
