Pic: The legs of Tour de France rider Bartosz Huzarski will freak you out completely

If you've recently enjoyed a heavy dinner, maybe best not to look.

If ever a picture showed just how tough the Tour de France can be, this is it.

The veins on Swiss rider Bartosz Huzarski's legs are absolutely bulging after he completed Stage 18 of the event.

Huzarski denied that his Spiderman legs (thanks for that, Bleacher Report) are the result of doping, however.

"I did not expect that picture of my legs would cause the confusion it did," he said.

"For me it’s totally not a revelation, because I can see this view - maybe not everyday – but still often, especially after a hard race at high temperature.

"People write and think different things, “that is impossible”, “that is not normal”, “it is unhealthy”, refer to doping, etc …

"Of course I will not have legs like Victoria’s Secret models, or Mary from a nearby vegetable shop, or anyone working in an office who does a 10km bike ride or an hour run three times a week. Unfortunately it does not work like that and this what you see in the picture. It is not unhealthy."

For those who can stand it, here's the image...
