Wheelsucker n (pronunciation: /wi:/’s^ké/)

In cycling parlance, a Wheelsucker is someone who rides in the slipstream of the cyclist in front, thereby obtaining the maximum benefit of drafting, whilst expending the minimum of energy.

In the hands of an expert, wheelsucking can result in 25 stage wins in the Tour de France and the acquisition of the Tour de France maillot vert, the rainbow jersey of the World Champion, a glamour model partner and the title of BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2011.
