Tour de Bretagne organizers respond to allegations regarding Costa’s motorised doping

In the last couple of days a video in which you can see that the rear wheel of Adrien Costa’s bike starts turning again without propulsion from the pedals after the rider laid his bike down became viral on the internet. The footage was filmed by a french spectator in the 4th stage of Tour de Bretagne, won by the young American rider.

The video sparked many reactions and the Tour de Bretagne organizers replied today: “Everyone which cycled know that when you put your bike on the pedal the back wheel turns, furthermore with ceramic rotations and furthermore in a slope of 10 %”, said Yann Corollou.
