In fact, the most successful Olympic cyclist's legs look relatively small when compared with German cyclist Robert Forstemann's monster thighs.
Forstemann was pitted against his compatriot Andre Greipel in a 'quad off' by New Zealand cyclist Greg Henderson.

The track and road racing cyclist posted a photograph on Twitter of the pair standing next to each other bearing their muscular bottom halves.
Mr Henderson said: ‘You thought Greipel has a big set of legs. There was a quad off in the German camp today. Greipel lost. pic.twitter.com/91Y7S7ps’
The post was accompanied with the above picture which seemed to prove the two cyclists had been sticking to their strict Games training regime - no doubt with plenty of squats.
Donning only boxers, with their trousers dropped to their ankles, the Germans show off their gigantic quadriceps.
Big enough? Forstemann's thighs make his compatriot's impressively large legs look small
Defeated: Greipel appears to have lost out in the 'quad off' to his track cycling compatriot
Although Greipel’s thighs look big, Förstemann has freakishly large vein-laden muscles which dwarf those of his 30-year-old compatriot.
Forstemann was part of the UCI Track Cycling world champion side which won the team sprint for the Germans, but has been omitted from the sprint team for the London Games.
Greipel - as well as partaking in Henderson's 'quad off' - competed alongside Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins in Saturday's equally thrilling road race.

The cyclists aren't the only athletes at London 2012 with superhuman physiques.
Swimmer Fabio Scozzoli has been turning heads at the Olympic Park, thanks to his giant underarms.
The Italian has such huge Lats, some fans have accused him of growing fins to gain an advantage.
They may look impressive, but Scozzoli's bulging arms didn't help him win a medal in last night's 100m breaststroke final - he finished seventh out of eight.
