How do you measure up??

by Gkam84   January 6, 2013  

So after finding out that each of Robert Forstemanns thighs are 28 inches (pictures below)

I am slightly worried about mine being MASSIVE for not being a pro cyclist. So how do yours shape up?

I just measured mine, one is 20.8 and the other is 21.1 (lop sided)

They were both around 23-24 a couple of years ago when at their biggest....

His hamstrings are well developed but still normal, it is the quads where all the extra goes.

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer, I spat out Plath and Pinter.

23 and 23.5
I must favour my right side on acceleration at lights.

What thighs? I can't see any thighs on those photos.

Forstemann was at the Revolution series on Saturday and I can confirm that they're huge. Hugh Porter while introducing him claimed Forstemann could leg press 700kg!

Didn't make much difference though, he got beat by a young Brit and a Frenchman in the sprint/keirin competitions. He did murder Ed Clancy in the team sprint but to be fair Clancy had been racing elimination and points races all night.
