Neural doping? Would that be cheating?

Posted on 8th December, by CClinton in Industry. Comments Off on Neural doping? Would that be cheating?

I can’t wait for my first experience with a racer on this system. I think it might go like this:

Rider pulls up next to support card.

Rider: “My bike’s not shifting correctly”

Mechanic: “We can help. Hey, where are your shifters?”

Rider: “In my head. This bike is neural.”

Mechanic: “Sorry, we didn’t bring spare brains.”

Don’t get me wrong, this is an intriguing idea and I’d like to check it out in person. I just wonder if the UCI would quickly make up a new rule stating that athletes were not allowed to shift with their brains, that this is cheating when properly used by smarter athletes. Neural Doping?
