Okay cool. That’s kind of what I thought. FYI: Athletes lie HARRRRRD about their body weight on sites like that. I’m not saying that Remco did lie (or that whomever recorded his weight there for procyclingstats.com did lie).
Just saying that it’s very common practice for elite and sub-elite athletes to underreport their weight, in sports like running and cycling.
I’ve seen one world champ (who I’ll leave nameless for privacy reasons) report body weight probably 5-7kg under what actual race weight was. I think they just take the lightest number they’ve seen on the scale in the last year, and report that.
In part, I think it’s wishful thinking. In another part, it can be advantageous to make your competitors fearful of what you might be capable of.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen any hard evidence of anyone overstating their weight in cycling, tri, or running.
Maybe in bobsled (I did.) Never hurts to intimidate the opponents a bit.
Who cares though… still crazy power if he’s reporting a couple kilos light.
