The notion that 3663.5km of riding a bike within a three week period might affect the human the body should hardly come as a surprise, but a photo posted by Polish cyclist Bartosz Huzarski's legs taken after the 18th stage of the Tour de France highlighted just how great a toll the event places on its athletes.
The striking image led to some questioning whether Hubarski had dabbled in blood doping, claims which he dimissed on his Facebook page.
"I did not expect that picture of my legs would cause the confusion it did," he said.
"For me it’s totally not a revelation, because I can see this view - maybe not everyday – but still often, especially after a hard race at high temperature.
"People write and think different things, “that is impossible”, “that is not normal”, “it is unhealthy”, refer to doping, etc …

"Of course I will not have legs like Victoria’s Secret models, or Mary from a nearby vegetable shop, or anyone working in an office who does a 10km bike ride or an hour run three times a week. Unfortunately it does not work like that and this what you see in the picture. It is not unhealthy."
Huzarski finished 68th in the event won by Italian Vicenzo Nibali.

I guess the whole "cycle world" is under the spotlight now due to the last few years - and yes there are alot on - but from this pic you can not tell - 1. his legs are not even that big (and yes I know they are not going for size) and 2. think about the blood flow smashing through their legs in some of the sections which would of course cause a huge amount of vascularity + combine that with these athletes being overlly lean then the pic above totally makes sense.

Its very easy for people to jump on the steroid bandwagon - and def around sports like cycling - but far out....come on people! lol

And at the end of the day who even cares lol

Too hard to tell from pics but cyclists like posting pics of their legs, reminds me of the olympic sprint cyclist posting leg pics, they were impressive

I agree, although you'd like to think that after the media hype (like doping is something new) and the increased scrutiny the sport is under, that these guys wouldn't be stupid enough to post pictures raising questions like that if they were on.

Impressive sticks either way.

Unsure whether the tweet from Robbie Mcewen is a compliment or tongue in cheek and he's rolling his eyes.....

Whatever could or could not be inferred from his legs, if he's a serious competitive cyclist you can reasonably assume he's on.

Dude came 68th.. I'd be looking for a new 'sports nutritionist' :p

As rugby said. Not even that big, but given the distances these cats do, I wouldn't be surprised to see the veinage going on there.

Am sure those at the top of the game are still on some kind of ped or blood doping. How else are they supposed to win it?

Not natty. Not because of the pic. I just think it's easier to assume that the TOP athletes in very high paying sports are going to be on something. Whether they get caught or not...?
