Well, Majka certainly has protruding lower jo but certainly not stature or other signs of HGH (ab)user.

There's plenty of variation in how people naturally look, and if you naturally have higher levels of growth hormone you'll probably be able to recover from efforts (and especially injuries) better, so elite cycling will tend to select for that to an extent. Outside of dramatic overnight transformations this thread is a waste of time.

Well, i don't find this picture concerning in any way. First, it should be expected that amongst elite athletes a pronounced jaw is common (you don't become an athlete if your hormones are not on a good natural level). And second, this jaw is not even close to a "lantern jaw". In my opinion just a combination in this picture of a normal jawline and just a very skinny neck.
