Don't they check the bikes before and after the race? They weigh them to make sure they are not under-weight

Also, did you hear the racket the electric motor made. I think suspicions might be aroused if they heard the sound something like an electric drill coming from your bike as you shot forward.

quite agree but the fact that apparently he changed bikes not much time before he shot up in an apparently quite seamless effort is a bit troubling
you wouldn't want him to pedal with a few more kilos before the crucial moment don't you ?!
and better have the best charged battery !!!!
and technical progress has improved so the soundless electric motor may exist after all !

about the change of bike
one of the videos shows him looking at the back wheel so as to make it look like there is a mechanical issue but it does not look convincing at all !

frankly it is quite troubling :shock: :?
