VIDEO: Phil Gaimon accuses Cancellara of Motor Doping

“When you watch the footage, his accelerations don’t look natural at all, like he’s having trouble staying on the top of the pedals"

The first incident to fuel suspicion over motorised doping in professional cycling came during the 2010 Tour of Flanders. Fabian Cancellara executed a mid-course bike swap during the race and later accelerated away from Tom Boonen, rather effortlessly.

Cancellara was accused of mechanical doping after an Italian film claimed to show how the Swiss rider used a hidden, battery powered motor.

“When you watch the footage, his accelerations don’t look natural at all, like he’s having trouble staying on the top of the pedals. That f*cker probably did have a motor,” Gaimon states In his new autobiography Draft Animals.

Cancellara has repeatedly denied being involved in any form of mechanical doping.

Former Cannondale rider Phil Gaimon accuses Fabian Cancellara of using a hidden motor in his bike “I dismissed it until I heard his former teammates talk about certain events where Cancellara had his own mechanic, his bike was kept separate from everyone else’s, and he rode away from a “who’s who” of dopers,” Gaimon states in his book.
