London 2012 Olympics: New Zealand Cyclist Robert Forstemann Shows Off Monster thighs (PICTURE)

New Zealand cyclist Greg Henderson documented the “quad off” on his Twitter feed, noting: “You thought Greipel has a big set of legs…”

And judging by those tan lines, Forstemann has either been on a spray tan binge or is training in only the briefest of briefs. More tea vicar?
