After the total dominance of events in the “pringle” at the London Olympics the boss of Team GB, Dave Brailsford was asked by a L’Equipe reporter “to what exactly he attributed his teams phenomenal success?”. Dave quipped “we pay special attention to how round the wheels are…” The next day France’s national sports paper featured an expose on the secret equipment Team GB was using with the Head of the French National Track squad demanding an investigation into Britains “Magic Wheels”
