Cyclist withdraws from race after officials find a hidden motor in her bike

Cycling has the best cheating. Hands down. Other sports might try to step to the champ with their deflated balls and recorded practices, but NOTHING compares to having a motor in a bike that's supposed to be propelled by a person. Femke Van den Driessche was forced to withdraw from the under-23 race at the cyclo-cross world championships when officials made a curious discovery while inspecting her bike following mechanical problems.

A motor was mounted inside the bike with cables and housing found under the bike's saddle. Van den Driessche was a favorite in the race and claims she had no idea the motor was inside her bike -- saying she purchased it from a friend.

Oh that excuse? A world class rider buys their bikes second hand!
Who ever taught that person to cheat should have at the very least taught them to lie better!

Why wasn't discover during a pre-race check? Usually before any race an inspection of equipment and person is conducted prior to the race beginning.

I have a hub motor in the front wheel my bicycle, similar to this one. If you're looking for it, it's easy to spot, but most people don't realize an electric motor can be squeezed into that hub. Given that the motor is completely silent, I can kick it in, pretend to pedal, and usually nobody is the wiser.

As battery life is limited, I only kick in the motor on steep hills. Biking is much more fun without the killer hills wearing you down.

Huh? The champ with deflated testicles, we never heard about this in Europa :eek-52:

It's a hidden motor.

The video stated this is a common issue currently. Given that, as I said, normally equipment and contestants are checked out prior to a race. Right on the handlebars was an ignition button to turn the motor on. Knowing this is prevalent, what did they think the button was for is not a power assist? Hidden or not, it's a no brainer for anyone doing a pre check.

The bike in the video showed no hint of modifications.
And a pressure switch could easily be placed under the handlebar tape where it would be very difficult to detect.
I would guess they're getting away with it right now because it's somewhat of a new thing and they really aren't looking for it.

You heard the expression of "having big balls" in reference to being brave or bold. Apparently they had to deflate the balls to come across as timid.
