Rumors that elite professional cyclists have been riding with small, illegal motors tucked away in their bikes have swirled around the pro peloton ever since this infamous truther’s video presented evidence against Fabian Cancellara in 2010. Despite more suspicious evidence occasionally floating to the surface,…
This weekend, Femke Van den Driessche, a 19-year-old Belgian cyclocross racer, lined up at the U-23 World Championships. She’d previously won the Euros and the Belgian championships, and she was the favorite to get herself a set of rainbow stripes. But she had a bad race, and was forced to exit with a broken chain one…
This MotoGP season has been one for the record books. It’s had insanely close races, tons of passing, and the overall points standing has been close all year. The only thing it’s been missing is drama - at least until now.
After Volkswagen was caught cheating its emissions tests with trick software, another rumor of Volkswagen cheatery popped up in motorsports. Could the Volkswagen team be using traction control to win at Global Rallycross, where driver aids such as traction control are expressly banned?
By now the full gravity of Volkswagen’s cheating the EPA’s emissions testing systems is out in the open, and while, sure, I’m appalled and disappointed, a perverse part of me is also kind of impressed. It’s a pretty clever cheat! But like all cheaters, VW got caught because they got lazy. I think I know how they could…
Sometimes, you have no choice but to fight fire with fire.
How do you deal with hackers that are dead-set on making everyone’s GTA Online experience awful? You return the favor by making their life a living hell, too.
Bad news for NASCAR driver Ryan Newman and Richard Childress Racing: while their penalties for tampering with their tires has been reduced slightly, the National Motorsports Appeals Panel upheld those penalties today. Newman's #31 car was caught with a slow leak in its tires at Auto Club Speedway.
There's a rumor floating around the NASCAR paddock that teams are drilling tiny holes in their tires to maintain a more even tire pressure throughout the race, according to USA Today. I'm not sure how that would work without exploding into a horrifying tire-ball, but then again, I'm not a master of clever cheatin'.
Mercedes-Benz is the official victor of the Formula One Constructor's championship, but for me, it doesn't matter who won officially. The way I see it, Red Bull Racing keeps winning everything. Because they keep cheating in the cleverest of ways, which is what F1 is all about.
The old saying says that it's not illegal if you don't get caught. In baseball, sometimes it isn't illegal even if you do.
If you've been so busy making tender love to your fake girlfriend and you've been unable to catch the news let me fill you in: Lance Armstrong admitted to cheating. Many of us did know that Lance Armstrong doped throughout his career, and a few nights back, he finally fessed up.
Cheating in sports is unfortunately…
Oh my goodness, the National Association Of Stock Car Auto Racing (as opposed to the national association of stock car boat racing) is full of cheaters! Stone-cold cheatin' to victory in every race, ever. America expects better from former moonshiners.
Oh Formula One... just when we think you're about racing and not regulations, Malaysian GP winner Sebastian Vettel gets 18 seconds of champagne-spraying before everyone decides Team Red Bull was clearly cheating. "They've got wings (and an adjustable suspension)!"
The most cars ever in a 24 Hours Of LeMons race (130), three former LeMons winners, and a cold rainy Ohio day all made for a very long day of Cheat Detection.
Those of you who read Judge Loverman's account of serving on the 24 Hours of LeMons South Supreme Court might be telling yourselves "That's interesting, but I really want to know how to give my alleged 500-buck race car an unfair advantage at the next race and get away with it!"
