Is it me or has something odd happened to Contador's head and face. It seems to have changed (got longer more horse-like) over the years.

What the hell has happened to his eyes/brow?





Could be, but the light is very different from the others and the large photo is shot close with like a 20mm wide. Forshortening alway's exagerates facial features and if the tilt of the camera is right can make the head look bigger than it should be compared to the body.

Oddly, Lance never had a brow anyway. He's now a browless wonder.

This is one of the greatest threads ever.

I will humbly do my part to keep it at the top of the charts.



This guy actually won the Tour ten times consecutively, and he did it clean. But it was on his home planet.

I see Contador’s head has opened back up. Wait…that didn’t come out right… :D

Maxiton didn’t you just write a post!?! I was going to say that Pound looked incredulous when he repeated that Verbruggen told him that the fans were responsible for doping!!!! …lololololololol…!!!

Yeah, Microchip, I'm sure Pound was scratching his head over that one.

This thread is pathetic, bone structure, levels of fat/facial muscles etc change with age so its virtually to tell. Endurance athletes tend to have scrawny bodies and very low BF% compared to 'normal' people hence why their heads appear a bit larger than normal.

Denial is not just a river in Eygpt

And many of them take lots of PEDS which enlarge the taker's head and brow.

Poor Alderto and Froome being victimised because of their low body fat and unfortunate camera angles that make them look massive dopers.

Which PEDs exactly?

I didn't really mean the discussion in general but the way the issue is being discussed.

Is HGH use still high amongst cyclist? I thought generally it was all about oxygen vector doping these days.

And I can't see any different between the photos

Recovery drugs.
Yes my quick bit of research does bear that out, in fact it made me hanker after some, still recovering from my ride yesterday. That and the cider in the evening.

Clearly little can be drawn from pictures of this nature though.

After watching the European Athletics Indoor Championships at the weekend I was left wondering whether Robbie Grabarz has always had such a pronounced brow.
