Mechanical doping: Disturbing images on the Tour

While the hour is with suspicion vis-a-vis the performances of the cadors of the Tour de France, certain sequences observed during the 18th stage challenge.

Although Primoz Roglic and Steven Kruijswijk had to throw in the towel before the peloton arrived in the Pyrenees, the Jumbo Visma offered a real show of force on Thursday during the 18e stage of the Tour de France. While the day before, Jonas Vingegaard had appeared isolated, the fault of the force in the Azet pass by Brendon McNulty for his leader, Tadej Pogacar, the riders of the Dutch team crushed the race.

The most impressive performance is obviously that of Wout van Aert, at the forefront from kilometer zero, passed in the lead in the Spandelles pass and whose last acceleration in the climb of Hautacam made Tadej Pogacar give up. But Sepp Kuss, who has long managed to stay in contact with his leader and the Slovenian, despite the successive attacks of the double winner of the Tour, was not left out. And the American sometimes seemed easy. Too ?

Images did not fail to challenge. As the Colorado native took a tight rope turn into the wheel of Tadej Pogacar and Jonas Vingegaard, his bike suddenly seemed to pick up speed before he even picked up the pedaling cadence or got into a dancer. “Look, a bouncy bike!” It’s been a while ! »thus wrote Antoine Voyer, formerly of Festina, in the caption of a video for the less striking.

Another sequence caught the attention of the doping defender. Tadej Pogacar’s wheel indeed also seemed to jump on the descent, which would have caused him to lose grip and cause him to fall.
