houseandwhips.com - Colin Strickland's plastic surgery speculation is making rounds on social media and it's unclear why. The former bicycle racer has not suddenly started looking different than before. He just looks a bit haggard and older. Given how Colin Strickland's career is basically over, plastic surgery might not be his priority.
Colin Strickland used to be a bicycle racer who specialized in gravel racing and fixed gear criteriums. He was good at what he did and he quickly rose to the top of the cycle racing world after his wins in the Red Hook Crit series. He had also won the Gravel Worlds in 2017 and 2018. But he truly achieved fame in 2019 when he won the Unbound Gravel 200 in the presence of several current UCI World Tour professional riders. The rise in his stardom got him many endorsements and sponsorships.
Colin Strickland was really in a career-high until 2022 when everything came crumbling down after the murder of Moriah Wilson, a fellow professional gravel cyclist with whom he was in an on-again off-again relationship, by his girlfriend Kaitlin Armstrong. He is said to have purchased the gun that Armstrong used to kill Wilson. After his involvement with the murderer and victim came out, he took a fall from which he's unlikely to recover. Anyway, the speculations about his plastic surgery are taking over social media currently, and let's see what's that about!
Colin Strickland's Plastic Surgery: Why Do People Think He Has Had Work Done?
Colin Strickland (@colinatx) most likely has not had plastic surgery. He has not changed much in terms of appearance except that he looks a bit haggard and leaner than before and that might be because he lost weight due to stress from everything that's going on.

For some reason that's hard to understand, there's been a significant rise in the number of people on the internet who have been scouring the internet for information about Colin's cosmetic surgery. It's not clear what has led to people thinking that he might have gone under the knife because there's nothing about him that remotely suggests that he might have had plastic surgery.
Colin Strickland looks pretty much the same as he did in 2022 when he rose in infamy after he was found to be associated with Moriah Wilson who was shot to death by his girlfriend with a gun that he purchased. He was just a regular white guy with nothing remarkable or striking about his appearance. But I don't think the fact that he wasn't much endowed in the looks department affected him much because as a two-time world champion in gravel racing, he was semi-popular and he enjoyed a lot of attention from women. He probably never considered plastic surgery.
As it was, some Reddit users observed that Colin Strickland was egocentric in how he reacted to the death of his former lover. From his behavior during his court attendance and his social media presence, it seemed like he was more torn up about his career taking a hit than his former girlfriend losing his life. He had little concern about the victim. He acted like he was the hot sh*t that got severely inconvenienced by what happened to Moriah Wilson. He might just be too far up his a*s to think he would need plastic surgery.
Did Colin Strickland Have Plastic Surgery Like Kaitlin Armstrong?

Strickland does look like he's significantly aged since 2022. He looks much leaner than before. Very haggard but that might be because of weight loss he likely had due to stress over being dropped by several brands sponsoring him including Specialized, Enve Composites, and apparel brand Ralpha. He looks different in that regard but other than that, he's pretty much the same. It really does not look like Colin Strickland's had plastic surgery.
I repeat that he probably doesn't think he needs to have cosmetic surgery but maybe it's not about him feeling the need to go under the knife. He might have considered taking a leaf out of Kaitlin Armstrong's book and getting work done. Armstrong, in order to evade the capture, fled to Costa Rica where she attempted to start a new life with a new identity and of course, a new appearance. She had plastic surgery to change herself, most likely in hopes that she would go unrecognized and hence, free.
Colin Strickland does not need to go unrecognized but he might want to start a new life. Everyone knows how he's pissed at the death of his career. So, in order to start fresh, he might get the idea to change his appearance, shift his base, and start once again. I mean, it does not look like he's had work done but if there's any truth to the speculations, it might be that he had plastic surgery to begin again.
