Nope, I think they're just wee sized European riders. You just don't notice until they're off the bike and stand next to an average height or tall person. Makes everyone else look like gigantors.

I never knew Cal was that small.

I can see Honda wanting to keep Cal - he's been the test mule all year and he's pretty fast. Not sure what they see in Miller, but he hasn't had too much time to get used to the big bikes.

ive met marc in person he is small but nowhere near as small as dani. i know all these guys are small but in the picture the marc vds guys look so much bigger than the factory guys. i think its just the picture.

marc is about 5'5 maybe 5'6 about 130 lbs.

I went to a rider meet & greet at phillip Island a few years back and got to have pics with Marc, Rossi, Hayden etc.
im 5'10 and 95kg (210lbs) so was pretty funny on how small these guys were.
