French news is saying that one of the bikes from the WC round in Belgium has been held and inspected due to a suspected motor.

No confirmation yet, but an interesting story to follow!

    Just as with drugs, it robs the clean rider of the coverage they so richly deserve...

    To activate the little motor obviously.

    Blimey, do I need to point out the obvious in everything?
