    I thought that was a photoshopped pic at first. But then I found this link.

    They've been that way ever since I can remember. Seriously nasty. Maybe some sort of genetic karma, good genes for aerobic capacity, bad genes for varicose veins.

    yeah, if you see the pic of him on the cover of Velonews's tour special, you see the same thing. When I first saw it, I thought, "WTF?"

    Check it out at local races; a few guys are like that, though I've never seen one in person as bad as GH

    With as much money as he has you'd think he'd get it fixed. It's a pretty easy outpatient surgery. There is a guy that does a local training ride that has just one leg that's twice as bad as that.

    Thumbs up Varicose Veins

    I have FAR worse vaicose veins than that...seriously. Rarely wear shorts in the summer because I'm sick of answering peoples questions (e.g. "Don't they hurt ?", etc). For me it's genetic...got them from Mom. My Doc says to leave them alone unless they bother me...never have to date...just a serious cosmetic flaw. I'm Almost 54 but have had these beginning around age 20. Wish I could ride like GH. He's my new hero.

    When he wins this TDF he'll be getting a lot of visual exposure - not good publicity for those who are thinking of taking up cycling.

    HUH! Why?
    That t-shirt we get at the end of a century makes it so worthwhile!

    Um I am not too sure if it has something to do with very low fat percentages but I have seen pictures like this a lot from the pro peleton - do these veins appear because of the athletes/riders low fat percentages????

    Being able to see all the vessels is due to low fat percentage, but low fat doesn't make them look like intestines. :-O

    Varicose veins are enlarged and/or stretched veins which protrude in a rope-like manner underneath the skin. Normal veins, by virtue of one way valves, channel oxygen depleted blood back to the heart and lungs to become oxygen rich. When a valve becomes defective blood is permitted to flow both forwards toward the heart and backwards toward the feet. This abnormal backward flow of blood causes the veins to enlarge resulting in the development of varicose veins

    So it isn't the EPO???

    I wonder if that makes one leg stronger than the other...

    Why? Why mess with success? It doesn't seem to slow George down!
