Has anyone else noticed Floyd having lost a lot of weight in the ToC this year? I remember in GA last year and on TV, he always had a bit of a chubby face and even a double chin (see pic below). Honestly I have never seen Jan look like that.

This year Floyd seems leaner than ever. What's the story?

Might be the angle of his head/neck making the difference. He's eseentially looking up in the action shot.

Based on my anecdotal observations over the years I think there is a genetic link between red hair/freckles and storing more fat subcutaneously vs internally, so for a given BF% they tend to look fatter.

Weird body type?
I don't know about a weird body type, but he just looks kind of strange. Hellova bike rider though. He kind of reminds me of those garden nomes, esp with that beard. Not that I should talk about being funny looking though....

I was trying to figure out what was different about Floyd this year but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. I think you are right, he's thinner this year.
