  2. This is fantastic! Thanks for putting this together. I’d love to see something similar for professional cycling, and found some of the data on sports-reference, which you cited as your source. How did you get the height/weight info from the site?

      1. Unfortunately, I don’t see a ‘rosters’ page on the cycling info, as it is organized a bit differently. Thoughts on how to get this data?

      2. Short of clicking on individual athletes’ pages for that information, I’m not really sure what you can do. I usually try to look for 1 page with player stats that also includes dimensions but as there are no “teams” you might be out of luck in this case.

  3. Hi – can you confirm if I can reproduce these charts in an insurance presentation on the subject please? I can’t see any copyright conditions. Hilary

    1. Sure, these were made for fun and are free to reuse as needed. But keep in mind I can’t guarantee their accuracy as the data was gathered from websites of varying pedigrees.
