Some help please ??

I think working to many hours is really effecting my Brain but if you look closely at these pictures do they not seem really badly Photoshoped ?? Maybe its me but do Edwards, Dovi`s and Pedrosa`s necks all look like way to long? Ostrich heads almost..

I'm no expert but it doesn't look PS'd to me. I think it is the lack of under shirt and they guys have not traps. Look at their shoulders. They are squared off compared to De Puniet's which pick the whole suit up higher on their neck. Edwards' is more of a V cut suit. Its open all they way don't to his sternum.

Looks great to me. A BUNCH of the world's FINEST athletes. Nothing comes close to these guys.

Edwards is tall for a moto racer; guess his long neck is giving him the height.

When you look at the point where the shoulders connect to the neck and the bottom of the chin, the vertical distances between them seem to vary a lot. I agree that some of the pics look a bit unnatural, but that's probably how they really look. Compare the pic of Pedrosa with a pic on this website: http://www.gardenmajik.info/2012/08/dani-pedrosa-motogp.html. He seems to have a long neck in both.

no. don't forget these guys are very small people for the most part so things look a bit off.
Yes, the pro racers split all kinds of hardware hairs to stay up with peers, but when it comes to genetics, the small pro of equal ability wins out. Big guys can be slightly better, but just can't keep up with a good rider 20 pounds less! Sad and too funny at the same time.
