Lots of discussion on cycling and motors elsewhere, like:…;t=30462

There are a number of threads over there about motors over the years, and includes discussion of the 60 minutes piece on the last few pages.

Serious cyclists have known for years, suspected even longer. Bike racing and F1 are the leaders in cutting edge(read:cheating)technology.

So, the entire time that Armstrong was being churned through the international media ringer, the Europeans knew there were racers with motors in their bikes? Kinda feels like Armstrong was used as a fall guy and a distraction from an arguably bigger story.
