Thought you all might like this.... Traditionally the people who go flat out at winches in sailing are called 'grinders'. With a bit ot lateral thinking Team NZ has started to use stationary bikes as winches, turning grinders into what they call 'cyclors'. Makes sense but looks really odd, like the yachts and pedal powered.
I think the main thing they actually do is manually power up the hydralic ram that is used to adjust the wing sail.
Anyway... the training regime will look kinds familar to many of us...
And the end result looks pretty amazing...
Sorry for the links rather than embeds - whatever it says below you can't use objects in these forms.... ah well.
Oh and all these yachts' foil' now, as you will see.
For me one of the few things more beautiful than a bike is a yacht... but I grew up sailing and cycling
