Wish I could answer your question, but you did remind me of a funny scene from a few years back:

In the early miles of a tour stage the tallest and shortest riders in the peloton switched bikes for a bit, you know, good to get the team jersey on camera .

The little guy looked like a little kid stealing his older brother's bike and the big guy had his knees in his chest.

I'm 5'10...and we all know which pro rider is 5'10 also. I weigh less than him though. But probably because I have less muscle.

Saw this in VeloNews and thought about this thread. The only names I recognized as active riders were Tom Boonen & Geo. Hincapie. (To lazy to research the others). Seems like I heard somewhere that Marty Nothstein had retired, but I don't know. Zanoli gained notoriety in a Tour duPont where he got in several altercations with other riders, punching them while on the bike, etc.

I've got a Marty poster in my room...Well, actually is a promotion for oakleys, but it's got him on it wearing some M frames. I've also got one of Lance that says "Imposibility Defeated, 1999" and he's wearing his sig addition oakleys.
