An alternative take: the difference between the pics on this page and blackcat's 'before' pic can easily be explained by a young guy getting older and losing puppy fat, and getting a brace.

If anything his dental problem looks to be one of overcrowding - let's be honest the lad has big teeth - rather than his teeth falling out - as the 'circumstancial evidence' would imply.

This is not like the rugby before and after pix, where a 26 year old Boonen like pretty boy is transformed into the Incredible Hulk in 2 seasons.

Not saying he is or isn't, just that there are multiple explanations.

+1, you beat me to it, and thanks for the laugh up-thread

Perhaps what people are trying to say here is that all the others mustn't be using hgh because they don't have braces:D

definitely. Cyclists lose white tissue and muscle from their face, so this will expose the bone structure that was previously hidden. Who thinks a 40yo Jacky Durand or Jens Voigt looks like a 20yo at 80 kgs with full cheeks? No one.

I'm beginning to think you're a dentist, do you have a Colnago?

Does HGH increase Todger size ?? coz a lot of pro cyclists are well endowed. :)
it's just that there is no room between his legs, so that distorts the picture.
 
Not a fan of these types of threads. Speculation runs rampant enough where there are legitimate concerns.

But judging PED use by the size of a rider's head and teeth from random photographs is an exercise in straw-grasping.
