    UCI confirms motorised doping uncovered at cyclo-cross World Championships

    UCI President Brian Cookson has confirmed that the governing body found evidence of a motor in a bike at the cyclo-cross World Championships on Saturday. Following the under 23 women’s race on Saturday, the UCI issued a press release stating that they were investigating a rider’s bike for possible “technological fraud.”

    Motorised doping has been a topic of discussion since 2010. The regulations on technological doping were brought in last January and could see a rider given a minimum suspension of six months and a fine of anything between 20,000 and 200,000 Swiss Francs.

    This type of thing has been suspected for 5 years or so...crazy.

    I'm just here for support, cycling is the last sport I care about.

    It may require a certain skill to become great at it, but that trait just isn't interesting enough to watch.

    Idk how anyone rides a bike more than 5 miles at a time. I mean I could go for longer, but even after a 5 Mile ride with my kids in the summer my ass is so sore. Bike seats are built for kids I think
