Medic! Can I Get A Medic! has posted some funny pictures from the pre-Tour medical checks. Some of the favorites included in the shots are Tom Boonen, Robbie McEwen, Baden Cooke and Lance Armstrong.

And of course, don't forget the Great French Hope, Thomas Voeckler:

Just by looking at these pictures, several things are evident:

1) Tom Boonen has lost a little weight and looks fitter than ever.
2) Baden Cooke has a terrible haircut.
3) Levi Leipheimer has lost weight, and is either in great shape or near death.
4) Lance looks very strong and very ready to go.
5) Pro cyclists are as dorky as all other cyclists.

Looks like someone has been riding a lot. And on that note, I'm glad I'm not the only one with some truly horrible tan lines.
