Napolitano has always been quite heavy. So was Bobbie traksel.

Looks funny though. :D

Also because he said he weighs 74 kg at the moment, and his ideal race weight should be somewhere around 69 kg according to Wikipedia.

I dont think Phinney is 85kg. Based on my own height/weight I would say he is about 80kg. I'm 195cm and 87kg and even last year when I was 83kg he looked leaner and thinner than me.

As per his FTP. I would be be guessing 420-450W max but closer to the 420W area. If I was pushing 500W I would be winning all local Cat 1 races and dropping 120lb guys on every climb.

That's not fat, that's abdominal breathing. For someone with a database of cyclists you should pay more attention to the actual human physique ;)

You can find pictures of Armstrong with the yellow jersey in the Tour, sporting such a pot belly.
