Biggest Quads

I think Germany's Robert FORSTEMANN's quads have even gotten bigger! Looks like Tom Platz. If you can't tell he is in the far right in this photo from yesterday.

I'm not sure whether you were being sarcastic, but I think it would be safe to assume that they don't sope, if only for the reason that the fate of German cycling is ready to cease if there is one more doping scandal.

Wasn't there a head-on picture of Tom Platz riding an old 10 speed bike? It looked pretty crazy.
