From the Boulder Report [bicycling.com]:Stage 14 comments

9:00AM - Disco, you’re right about Lance. The biggest thing I’ve heard said about him the last couple of months is just how thin he’s gotten. All the soft edges he had at California or Castilla Leon are gone. At the Giro he showed up noticeably thinner and got better as the race went on. And now he’s positively avian-like. It looks like he’s got no skin - just muscle and bone.

...i wonder if he's below what he was in 2004, which was 6%...

And yet he somehow looks larger than he did in any other Tour. Check the video....
