Bike doping!?

Oh dear! It always pays to be a bit cautious when getting excited about major triumphs and demonstrations of power in the world of professional cycling. I fell for the dope-fuelled displays of Floyd Landis in the 2006 Tour de France, then redeemed myself slightly by spotting as drug users both Michael Rasmussen in 2007 and Riccardo Ricco in 2008. But now it seems there is another form of cheating that will be more difficult to spot, and the chief suspect is - Fabien Cancellara, whose amazing win in the Paris-Roubaix is now being called into question because of possible ... er ...Bike Doping!
