Wout Van Aert’s Bike Arouses Mechanical Doping Suspicion

Another allegation of motor doping have started to play out after a video appears to show Van Aert's rear wheel keeping spinning whilst running with his bike at a CX race

After a twitter storm when we re-posted the video, many Gran Fondo Guide followers have commented that it looks like the pedal gets jammed in the mud,  which causes the back wheel to spin.

There have been lots of revelations recently surrounding motor doping with rumours that a top team took a delivery of motorised road bikes. This was alleged by the notorious engineer Istvan Varjas, widely believed to be behind the invention of mechanical doping in cycling.

60 Minutes expected to broadcast investigation into Mechanical Doping around January 28th 2017.

CBS's investigation takes them to Hungary meet the engineer who's widely acknowledged to have invented major mechanical doping systems, Istvan Varjas.

Rumours are that Armstrong’s former teammate Tyler Hamilton and Greg LeMond were also interviewed.

Last year Astana threatened legal action after Nibali who crashed alongside Chris Froome in the Tour de France. Nibali crashed on the descent and images showed how his wheel kept turning, some have accused him of mechnical doping. The same happened for Ryder Hesjedal in the Vuelta two years ago.

Fabian Cancellara was accused of having a motor  in his bike to win the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix in 2010.

Former Italian professional Davide Cassani claimed that motor doped bikes have been used since 2004, and demonstrated a bike containing a hidden motor on Italian Television station RAI.
