    3773 tests at tdf and they are all negative.
    Not a surprise really.

    What about when they freeze the tests and come back to them in 8 years

    Saw this one on Facebook last week, http://dopedbikes.com a friend reckons he is getting one for 'research' purposes. Not very powerful from the looks of it, 50 watts wouldn't get my fat arse over many hills, it would probably burn out. For the skinny guys though it's a different kettle of fish

    Looks as if Istvan Varjas is talking again, and this time it may be a big (incremental gains) story* - nothing to link to but twitter seems to have a few snippets.

    *aye, I know... :rolleyes:

    May be an idiot question but why would the French police be interested in mechanical coping, yes it's cheating but is it a crime?

    I believe "Sporting fraud" is a criminal offence in France.

    Not that any footballers have been done for diving...

  11. There's a whiff of the tin foil hat about that article.

    I've expressed my scepticism before on this subject, scepticism I still hold, plus, the UCI where using thermal cameras at the TdeF this year. It's all a bit, the secret life of Mechanical Mitty, to me but you can all point and laugh when I'm proved wrong.
