UCI investigating electric bikes

My piece on suspicions of Cancellara’s electric bike was a very popular read on here. And it seems even the UCI is taking the story seriously.

In a piece that you’d normally expect to see printed on 1 April, cyclingnews.com reports:

the UCI have confirmed to Cyclingnews that they are looking into a method of screening frames in order to remove any doubts.

I dare you to read the full report with a straight face. But as the piece suggests, the story is being carried by several newspapers. Still, if Cancellara has this technology, Andy Schleck doesn’t. He was dropped on the climb in yesterday’s stage of the Tour of California.
