    Heavy? No
    Pantani weighed 130kg
    Armstrong weighs 140kg
    The reason they specified 120kg is that it is an almost amazing statistic... showing that he has lost so much weight, he is lighter than the climbers!

  4. It has to be a joke 120kgs = 264 lbs.

    Jan still has a sense of humour about his ability to pack it
    on in the off season.

    Pantani weighed 130 LB, not KG! If he weighed 130kg, he'd
    have been a defensive tackle!

    Of course. Bicycle racers are second only to sumo wrestlers.
    All that energy has to come from somewhere.

    Approximately, but it's all muscle and lungs, so it's all
    good.
