    Beautiful photos. Hands down.

    However, Wout might be another cheater. Please look at this short video from Adam Myerson’s instagram. His rear wheel suddenly spun without pedalling. Disappointing. I thought Wout was a real deal.

      Meh. I don’t think that shows much of anything.

      crazy stuff I haven’t seen that before.
      IF anything suspicious were there, don’t you think UCI would check? If they found a motor on a bike in the pits, one as to think they would check a bike that one the WC….

        I think UCI is “sketchily” doing damage control for PR purpose. IMO, if they exposed Wout, who was one of the top dogs, CX world would be under much greater scrutiny. Femke was a nobody before the exposure. Now, she is the number one villain in CX community. I think they knew. My 2 cents.

        I’ve had a look at this video and I don’t think it really shows much of anything. I was dubious when I first saw that Insta post– it doesn’t look good.
        (and no where does that Insta post say anything–purely just puts the footage out there and get’s people looking)
        The insta post is cell phone footage of a computer screen.

        ^Video is here and I recommend watch in HD. Watch from 10:50-11:00 min mark.
        There are quite a few guys slipping in the mud there and if you watch his braking coming into the corner the wheels slow and quickly start re-spinning as the brakes release. Much different wheel spin here between front and rear wheels. And not just for one guy either.
        2 guys infront of Wout have similar looking slippages, just his looks the worst.

        I think :

        1)totally harmless
        2)everyone is looking for more bad news where it doesn’t exist
        3)I’ve just gotta trust UCI is doing their job with motor detection. They’ve proven they can find them and I have to think that if they were there they would have found them before. Have to trust the technology here.

        Just my thoughts.

          Unfortunately, they blocked it for US audience. I hoped what you wrote was right and I was wrong.

      It would be nice to see the original footage, not the instragram recording from the TV, I am sure it will be available soon. But really? How stupid would he be to race with a motor the day after someone was apparently remotely caught with a UCI app on an iPad!

      • alkarpinsky

        I think the race in question was actually BEFORE the WC and she was caught. But that’s just nit picking details.
        FYI i did post a link up above^

        I’d be curious to hear how the ipad thing works– somehow detects the electromagnetic field or something. (If i were UCI i would NEVER explain how it worked…)

      All of the winners equipment was tested by the UCI and he had to do at least pee test as well.

    • His feet are definitely quickly circling when the wheel spins though?

      • Legstrong

        From what I saw (still am), he came in to the corner coasting. Then he back pedaled and forth a bit… Suddenly the wheel spun followed by his fast pedaling.

        • Doesn’t take much to spin out on some slippery stuff. I just check the knees to tell when the pedals are moving.

    Spent. Well done.
