There are no vegans at the Tour de France.

Or at least not real vegans.
I am referring to this article. David Zabriskie is not a vegan, as he says he eats salmon twice a week. Vegans never eat animals. And in my opinion the whole thing seems very misleading. First of all, because of the salmon. Then, because of this line:
That has been enough to keep his physique more muscular than the vegan stereotype.
I mean, we're speaking of a pro-cyclist. The average vegan (not a trained vegan) is often more muscular than a pro-cyclist. Pro-cyclists are exceptional athletes, but sure they are not the stereotype of a muscular physique.
On the other side, have a look at this video.

If you want more info about veganism and sport, VeganFitness is the right place.
