Speed appeal: Top male cyclists rated more attractiveWomen rate top male endurance cyclists more attractive than lower-ranked ones even without knowing who they are, a finding that sheds light on the mating game, a scientist said Wednesday.Evolutionary biologist Erik Postma of the University of Zurich selected portraits of 80 cyclists who took part in the 2012 Tour de France, one of the most grueling events in sport, and asked participants in an online survey to rate the faces for attractiveness.The top 10 percent best-performing riders on average were considered a quarter more attractive than the bottom 10 percent, Postma found.This left 104 portraits that were standardized as much as possible, of which Postma randomly selected 80 .There are also other factors for attractiveness, though, Postma stressed.
