After pro cyclist Ryder Hesjedal crashed on stage 7 of the 2014 Vuelta a España, something odd seemed to occur with his bike: the wheels kept spinning.
See the video here.
Bike Snob, a prominent cycling blogger, says yes:
Having watched the Hesjedal video yet again I'm no longer 99% sure there's a motor in that bike. I'm now 100% sure.
Is this true? Did Ryder Hesjedal really ride a motorized bike at the race?
