Cancellara has been accused of ‘mechanical doping’:
by the using best named product in the world:
and here is the the alleged proof:
he’s off like a brides nightie (3.34), but wouldn’t the noise of this thing alert everyone around him that something isn’t right?
I think it is a sensational idea, except it would be a pain to install and service, plus the internal gears would wear out real fast.
I can’t see how he’d do this, unless bike swapping occurred at a strategic point. An extra 2000gr is two water bottles, more than do-able and the weight is down low so the effects on the handling of the bike would be minimal, but retrofitting into his Sworks carbon frame would cause all sorts of problems.
Surely cheating does not occur in professional bicycle races?
