    Probably seen this before but took me a while to calibrate in my brain the use of a left hand crank for the US team at last weekend champs in the Womens Team Pursuit.

    Fixed as well though. The left hand cranks have been used on tandems.

    Probably to save a few grammes of centrifugal force.
     
  5. Force is measured in Newtons. Gram is a metric unit of mass.
