I've seen that pic before. First thing that came to mind was Belsen.
My wife keeps saying how ill he looks, I sure he must be resonably well to be holding the yellow jersey!
I thought for a minute Victoria Beckham had had her hair cut again...
It doesn't help that he is so straight up and down. My o/h has very low body fat levels and is very slim but he has broad shoulders and some shape.
I guess Rasmussen must be vaguely healthy to as competetive as he is, though by the sound of it he may well be having/have had some pharmaceutical assistance.
In what other sport does a world class athlete look as unhealthy as that?
I wouldnt expect to see any excess bodymass on him, competing at that level.
Perhaps he's just a naturally skinny guy ....unless you have seen pics of him looking considerably bigger in the past.
LOL, the press have a magical abiity to find the most unappealing pics of people. Saw a photo of Victoria Beckham in the Sun today, her leg looked a right mess...but i'd sooner feel her than feel hungry
(just making a point BTW..i dont fancy her...but one bad pic doesnt tell the whole story)
I agree with what you're saying gbb, they'll always use the photo which fits the message they're trying to put across. He makes me look plump though!
In all likelyhood he will be an ex-cyclist pretty soon and some humble pie might fatten him up.
I've never seen any picture where Victoria Beckham looks attractive, it's all in the mind I suppose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Poor guy can`t win. If he looked like Jan Ulrich people would call him a dough boy. I think he`s got just enough muscle on his lean frame to do the business.
I just sent the poor fella a food parcel. just hope he's got the energy to open it
I take your point though.
That's why they call him Skeletor. He only weighs 58kilos, and he's over 6 foot tall. Scary.
Plenty of lady boys about?
