I would not use a motor, or drugs. I'd use the trusted......

slipstream a team car,
1





or slipstream a gendarme







see also the locals getting a push, and unfortunately I was on the wrong side to get a good photo of the team car slippery bottle hand over. This is where the rider trys to take a water bottle and gets towed by the team car at high speed for 30 seconds.

Seal the main tubes, add a schrader valve and fill the tubes with a enough compressed air to drive the "Hole Shot Sprint Turbo" built into rear hub. ( Sorry, not advised for fixie applications)

On second thought, down a six pack of 5 Hour Energy drinks and a Mountian Dew Big Gulp and you'd get the same results for a lot less $

FYI: It's not considered un-sporting (by the riders) to get helped to the back of the pack after issues like a flat tire or crash.

I wouldn't mind this story so much if they hadn't slandered Cancallara to get their faces in the paper. The people that started this story are slime.

At least 3 friends of mine sent me this story and stayed on it. They were almost giddy about it. I just couldn't see him doing that.

Landis? sure.

Now, one of them, who builds and operates RC helos, planes, cars, and even a blimp, is trying to build a motor that would work.
