Cycling Weekly - - News -

Al­berto Con­ta­dor be­lieves that cy­cling’s tech­no­log­i­cal leap for­ward is one of the big­gest changes he has seen since he turned pro­fes­sional 15 years ago. How­ever, the re­tired rider said he does not be­lieve that mo­torised dop­ing within the pro pelo­ton forms part of that leap.

“I can’t be­lieve that [mo­tors] ex­isted in pro­fes­sional races,” he told Span­ish news­pa­per AS. “I’m not say­ing that with the am­a­teurs, for ex­am­ple, that type of cheat­ing oc­curs. But in the Tour de France? It has not crossed my mind.”
