I mean, I hate to sound accusatory, but...

I'm no expert, but there's something very different about this physique compared to the vast, vast majority of other pro women cyclists.

Seems to be more of a fan of the long breakaway as of late, actually.

I think you're just jealous because she stole your kit and you can't catch her to get it back

Oh, Doc...

She's only 5'2". I see women of all body types, including "short and muscular" in my races.

Here's an interview with Laura (complete with arm wrestling photo) from when she had just joined the Saturn team in '02:

I totally understand that there are a lot of different body types etc., and maybe it's just a testament to the sad state of affairs in pro cycling and the inevitable questions/accusations that follow a dominant rider, but she does kinda look different from a lot of the other women racing, at least in the recent races I've seen where she stomped everyone.

It really is kinda sad, and I freely admit it. Unfortunately I've come to the harsh realization that in pro cycling one needs to question such a completely dominant performance.

You're just jealous cuz her 'guns' are bigger than yours.
Maybe we should fix her up with Cypress?
