The cycles were Team NZ's innovation for the last America's Cup, which they won.

Since the winner essentially sets the rules for the next cup, Team NZ banned them for this one.

It would no longer be a strategic advantage - and would shift the sport from guys with shoulders to guys with legs.

I've popped up to Auckland and seen these boats practicing. They are amazingly quick, and you can see the forces involved when it goes wrong with the Patriot capsize.

There have been other capsizes - Team NZ has done 3, 2 in the prototype boat and one in the final boat, only minor damage compared to the what the Americans suffered - they've been able to pull the boat upright and keep on going.
