Jens Mouris weighs 91 kgs, although he's almost 2 meters in length that's one heavy rider.

Thanks for the responses, 94kg is a lot !

I also just remembered Dario Pieri (retired) was pretty, er 'chunky', anyone got a weight for him (when he was active) ? I couldn't find one.

According to this forum (http://weightweenies.starbike.com/fo...hp?f=3&t=13494) Pieri could be 93 kg or 108 kg. Not sure how accurate their info is though.

Dario Pieri (Ita) 1.82 m 93 kg
2003 2nd Paris-Roubaix, E3-Harelbeke semi-classic in Belgium in 2002, finished second at the 2000 Ronde Van Vlaanderen and won stages at the Tour of Langkawi and the Three Days of De Panne in 1998.

Saw him racing in Jan 2005 at the Tour Down Under and he looked BIG. Word was that he weighed 108kg at the time, which sounded believable, but I cannot vouch for the source. Forget about Ulrich, this man ate all the pies. Lasted half the first stage. Amazing to consider that this was a ProTour rider at the time.

Pieri did really pile it on towards the end of his career. 100kg+ wouldn't surprise me.

That reminds me of this photo of Phinney. Big George Hincapie not looking so big anymore.
