Thoughts?



Slaying the Badger was a good book. His writing had improved since his In Search of Robert Millar


Lantern Jaw or not?

Have you read, "Sky's the Limit: British Cycling's Quest to Conquer the Tour de France"?

He's a bit Jimmy Hill.

Haven't read that one. Was a bit worried it might be a bit fanboyish. Worth it?

No - I am not a fan at all. His journalism borders on propaganda. The book's title put me off for life.

Weight loss gives you the forehead of a caveman? Being fat then losing weight doesnt change your bone structure.

Warning: closeups of Tony Martin's forehead will scar you for life.

It looks like Spartacus chin and jaw is growing longer. Looks better when it's not in portrait perspective. How normal is it? Not very. But a common trait among cyclists...so yeah. HGH will do this. The key is finding where his forehead and chin were as a child. Some people have protruding jaws more than others. though typically it isn't a European trait. It's predominantly African and the top of the skull around the forehead...it does not match with the higher square forehead synonmous with Europeans gene pools.

#eugenics#phrenology#19centuryscience

but seriously, these pics above of the rower are a little like the cyclist Tammy Thomas and 1970 GED "female" athletes. and even JV has been on record about "forehead grows".
