Cyclists Legs - All In The Training

We all know that cyclists have great legs…well, depending on your definition. Here are two links showing the chasm between two very different training programs. I thought this was interesting…

Track Sprinter -

Cross country -

I almost feel bad for the endurance guy…


Oh My what happened to that poor guys legs?


Track cycling is cool and the architecture of the velodrome is a thing of beauty.

There are also women mountain bikers in my cycling class who have awesome quads and calf muscles.

Not all endurance cyclists have twiggy legs though.

Apparently the same thing that happened to his arms, forearms, neck and the other parts of his body.

I don’t know what happens when a gust of wind comes along…
