Trivia Question

No, there is not a prize for answering this one! We put up a news item yesterday that Lance Armstrong was going on the Wheaties cereal box, and that he was the first cyclist to do so. Scott Venn (who identifies himself as "pro cycling geek") says that this isn't true - Wheaties sponsored a team in the 80s and put a member of the team on the Wheaties box (Scott thinks the guy's name was Doug Smith). This faintly rings a bell in the dark, damp recesses of our editorial brain. Can anyone else confirm or deny this factoid? By the way, even if Lance is the first cyclist on the Wheaties box, our own Alison Sydor beat him to the cereal box cover, since she appeared on the Frosted Flakes box in 1996.
