Yeah, it's amazing the small size of some athletes. I train with a group of triathletes, many of them are the the elite level, and I really feel like the odd man out.

It depends. The triathletes, and other athletes of very light stature can generally be very healthy. We're just used to seeing relatively large people now.

I thought about that when people were giving Stoner shit , because triathletes have similar problems to what he had occasionally. mx guys go throught it too.

the difference is in motogp these guys are working themselves into marathon shape and loosing body weight which in person is seriously creepy to see a 6foot 145 pound guy.

Oh yeah, not saying it isn't odd to see people like that. But, on the flip side, we see people who are just as wide as they are tall. I'll take the bean pole look over that.
