Default 'Motorised bike' confiscated at Cyclo-cross World Championships

A bicycle has been confiscated at the Cyclo-cross World
Championships in Belgium after it was allegedly found to contain a
motor.

The International Cycling Union (UCI) said it was investigating an
incident of "technological fraud" in the women's under-23 race.


The race was won by Great Britain's Evie Richards, but none of the
podium finishers is under suspicion.

If confirmed it would be the first case of its kind in elite
cycling.

The UCI said in a statement that the bike "has been detained for
further investigation".

I guess the riders have been instructed where the switch is?

I do not see how it is possible to conceal some kind of functional motor inside the tube of a bicycle.

It would have to be in the bottom bracket most probably.

And what would power it? A battery probably or possibly some
dynamo type device.
..
But let's face it. How much power could a motor small enough to
fit in a bottom bracket put out?

I don't know what to make of the situation.

Was the bike acquired from a "fiend"?

Did she know the motor was there?

I wonder what the Coach and Mechanic (1) knew about it and (2) are
going to say about it.

She has nice boobs though
