No worries. Some of the pros, especially the sprinters have pretty stocky legs, yes. Climbers' thighs aren't generally as big but still an impressive sight. Track cyclists' thighs can be just something else.

Not roadies. I have bigger thighs than most of them ...... but that's not a good thing. They can put out more power with less weight.
