Bananito is already a legend. Let him in peace. He will lose 5-7 kg in the next 10 days and contend for a stage win in the last week. Good timing for the worlds.

What cycling rule says that you need to be slim? Let the man live his life. I love my food too.

He ain't an alien after all, no veins popping like crazy.

But I'd much rather be skinny than a fat little dumpling.

It's not all bad for him though, apparently Cancellara lost over 4kg in the heat yesterday! There could be hope he loses all the weight be the end of the Vuelta.

When ullrich had too much weight he had a good trick.

Go on a 8 hour ride with a bottle of water. No joke, he did it :)

The actual trick was stopping at the bars along the ride.

so now if you're fat, you can't be succesful or what?

that's kind of racist, guys
I completely agree! Betancur's doing away with the stigma that we need to be lean and in shape. Good job Carlos, keep fighting the good fight.

Must be a wikipedia joke.
Even if it is a good running gag, let's keep it satirical and not over the top. Even if the pictures show that he does not look like an anorexic pro, there is no way that he weighs in at more than Wladimir Klitschko....

it's not hilarious at all. it's like child humor. too obvious and easy to do. seriously most people here lack a good sense of humor. maybe it's a non anglo saxan thing I guess. mild jokes or humor or something.
