MOTOR FOUND ON BIKE IN NEW CYCLING STORM
CYCLING was being forced to confront fresh controversy on Sunday after the sport's head confirmed the first top-level case of "technological fraud" at the world cyclo-cross championship in Belgium.
An electric motor was discovered in the machine that was used by Femke van den Driessche, said Brian Cookson, president of the International Cycling Union.
Yet, the 19-year-old van den Driessche denied cheating allegations and said the bike looked identical to her own, but belonged to her friend and that a team mechanic had given it to her by mistake before the race.
