Thanks to Goat Bikes for the loan of the bike with the hidden motor:

Hidden motors have been causing a tonne of controversy in the road cycling world for the last couple of months after one was found in a race. Yeh, we know, unbelievable. Anyway, we got to thinking: if these motors are used on the road and in cyclocross, does that mean that there’s an advantage to having one on a cross-country bike?

Take a look at the video and let us know your thoughts. Don’t forget to SHARE this one too.
