Does Lance look fat in this photo?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Lance doesn't look fat to me, but that rider to Lances left sure looks tall.

lance put on 15-20 of upper body muscle last year since he doesn't have to worry about the all mighty watts/kg ratio. He looks like a normal guy now.

How the hell did you turn around on a moving bike and shoot that? I'm hoping it was blind. And yes, not everyone goes fast all the time, even lance.
