Haha, I'm both lighter and taller than him (if I've got his length correct, tho'). Nothing wrong with being skinny.

Yes, he can climb and he's had some impressive results. Good for him because he won't be getting girls by running around in a speedo on the beach.

To echo the sentiments of many others,

There's no way in **** that that dude weighs one hundred and thirty imperial pounds. 115 sounds like a stretch too.

I think adding a few pounds of muscle to 'em probably wouldn't hurt.

It boggles my mind to think that this kid was also the U23 World Champion in the TT a couple of years back.

Although, with the frontal area of a fence posts, he SHOULD do pretty well against the clock...

Next up on celebrity boxing we have a photon-weight division fight.

Rasmussen Vs Brajkovic









A1: Ken it looks like both athletes really hit the cardio this time.
A2: Sure thing Bill I think both of them have what it takes to go the distance.
A1: Iím thinking this will go to a decision Ken. It doesnít look like either one has knockout power.
A2; I agree. Letís take a look at the prize pool for todayÖ Hmm it seem that the winner gets to watch the loser eat this, combined with a $5,000 donation to the diabetes foundation.

That's not much of a feat given some of the podium girls I've seen for the U.S. races....

these girls, esp the dark-haired one, we're pretty good. there were definately some ladies in the crowd & hanging around the buses (riders' girlfriends?) who could've been a lot better.

So are you trying to say that he's too thin? Yeah, I mean, he's so unhealthy looking – who would've thought that he just won a bike race. And he's a "natural" climber? Yeah, I heard those guys tend to be skinny.

No way he is a pound over 120. His legs are way too small for that.
