I'll start motor pacing unsuspecting driver's on 35 mph roads a la Pee Wee Herman in Le Tour.

The family sounds like some real winners.

The bike is in official hands, of course.

Is the battery depleted? This would imply that the illegal device was actively used during the race, and that the rider knew how to operate the device.

I would say that if the battery is fully charged, then they probably intended to use it if she needed a boost.

All of that is beside the point...If non-compliant equipment is found near a team or race, “within or in the margins of a cycling competition,” as the UCI rule states, it qualifies as technological fraud.

So she's toast, period. It doesn't even matter if it was her bike or not.

I agree OC. She should be out. I was simply addressing "intent."

When this was brought up before (about Cancellera maybe?) I thought it was some really off the wall stuff. Man, I have to tell you, this has really got me bummed. So ridiculous and pointless.

I confess this episode has jogged my memory of Cancellara looking like he was shot out of a canon dropping Tomke a few years back, with no change in his pedal stroke. It was, simply, amazing. Not saying he was aided, but the whispers may rise to a murmur now.

Article below has videos of the Cancellera "controversy" as well as that of Ryder's rear wheel spinning in what seems to be an unlikely manner after a crash.

The Ryder thing is stupid, no suspicion there unless wearing an aluminum foil hat.

Fifteen very instructional minutes...of course you guys won't understand a thing.

Two guys test out a motorised bike with Johan Museeuw, then use the bike in a big kermis race...no one has a clue that there's a "cheater" in their midst.

I understood one thing: the motorized bike is named "Sparticus". I don't know if that was intentional, but I laughed out loud.

Of course that was intentional...that's Belgian humor for you :-)

About those magnetic wheels that we kind of laughed about a few months ago

Brutal if this is true.

Making Greg Lemond look not quite so dumb.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/lemond-the-uci-should-use-a-heat-gun-to-detect-motors/ (May, 2016)

Sadly, Greg Lemond is like Jimmy Carter. They both speak the truth about what they know and love (bicycle racing, humanity). That truth is way too uncomfortable for many at the top and if these troublemakers can be set aside, they will. (I thing the Panama elections during the Reagan administration was the last time the State Department used Jimmy Carter to oversee an election. He saw what was going on and said to the whole world what he saw. This was supposed to be a crowning achievement of spreading democracy.)

rant, rant

A new meaning for "packing heat".
