Who Are You?
I was directed to this today. I put in my height and current weight and matched with a rower and handball player - I don't possess either the skill or the upper body strength for either, and I am sure both have a far better 'muscle to fat ratio' than I currently possess!
What was interesting was that when I put in my height (1.9m) and my 'racing' weight from when I was 20 something (70kg) my nearest match was the GB super-hero Bradley Wiggins - OK, so pursuiting and TT's were my forte and I won few road races too, but it just goes to show that you need more than physique to become a great champion (maybe I should have let my sideburns grow?) ;-)
