That is interesting .... given the Rabobank team mateship those 2 - Hayman and Brown would have shared over many years. Hayman has now left I believe ?
 
What did you make of Graeme's grab for Robbie's wheel in the lead up to the sprint, stage 4, TDU? He robbed the rider on Rob's wheel: who then fought back to reclaim it but succumbed to GB's shoulders and arm. GB win's the wheel, then passes Robbie, but fades before line.

He actually has really lean legs and body, just a fat face. If we could get a list of the skinfold measurements of every rider in the peleton guaranteed half would be fatter.

This does not look like lean legs and body ...

Perhaps the pics are adding 50 lbs?

That's the unflattering picture which turns up again and again... I've seen plenty of TDU pictures where he doesn't look like that, and as it's taken only a week ago, I assume it has something to do with the jersey. And as for the legs, those are a sprinter's legs.
I'm not a fan either, but come on, this guy isn't fat.

Seems like he just gets in the way. i reckon he could do a job as lead out man looking at his size though.

or grow a moustache and become a Derny driver!

Great point.
El Gordo Brown seems to make his presence felt in the pelton.
Is he really all that fat.
He just likes to carry a "spare tyre" with him.
I wouldn't like to have to clean out his cage though.
