    Jan Ullrich 73kg, Lance Armstrong 75kg that can't be right? I thought Jan was a big LAD...! Is he not?

    That's still his published weight.
    see:
    http://www.t-mobile-team.com/cms/tmoteam/en/team/team2005/riders/templateId=renderInternalPage/contentID=8176/id=9158.html

    Most weights probably need to be taken with a grain of salt. (Except maybe Simoni...cripes 58kg?)
    I suspect that Jan's actual weight is all over the place especially early in the season. He supposedly dropped over 5kg's right before last years tour.

    Maybe they weigh him after 150km ride in a rubber suit with no hydration?:eek:

    A meant racing weights....

    I know Lance starves himself down to 158 pounds(71.66kg) and Jan does even more by getting to 160(72.57kg

    The weights listed are not the racing weights of many of the riders.....

    Hamilton is not 150 pounds(67kg)....he told me himself that he weights about 138 for big events.

    What do you think? That Jan weights 80 or what? Maybe he has some problems but I believe that he is lighter than Lance, because Lance is very strong! Just look how broadshouldered he is!

    No. One of the leanest riders I've ever seen. I raced at 71-73kg/187cm and he looked much leaner than me.

    I think people get the idea that riders like Lance and Jan are big guys because they see them next to Bettini, Rebellin and Cunego and they look big. It's the rare rider though that pushes 185.

    Here's some weights:

    Bettini - 128
    Boonen - 176
    McEwen - 145
    A Merckx - 160
    Ulrich - 160
    Vino - 158
    Basso - 154
    Julich - 150
    Voigt - 170
    Cunego - 143
    Simoni - 127
    Peta - 154
    Hincapie - 183
    Freire - 139
    Dekker - 145
    Rebellin - 147

    This is the chubbiest I have seen him in photos at this time of a year in which he has raced the Tour.
