    How big is the biggest rider on the tour?

    Just wondering. And do you know what place are they?

    Magnus Backstedt, who abandoned the Tour due to lung problems (I think), weighs 211 pounds.

    Here is some trivia from the pre race medical check. Backstedt is 98 kilos., or 216 lbs. He's usually a little lighter (200-205). Not sure why he would want to come into the TDF heavier than normal. He's also 6'3". He is my height and weight exactly.
