The bikes belonging to a number of teams have been checked for motors prior to the start of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad this morning.
Amongst the teams who had their bikes checked were LottoNL Jumbo who posted the video below with the message: “Bike motor check at @OmloopHNB. A good thing! #OHN”
The UCI recently said it will continue to test “a significant numbers of bikes” in unannounced tests in all disciplines throughout 2016 and beyond.
The checks this morning follow on from the recent find of a concealed motor in a bike ridden by Belgian rider Femke Van den Driessche at last month’s UCI U23 Women’s Cyclo-cross world championships.
