Default Oval Chain Rings

The only one I saw using these things was Froome. When they first came out some 30 years ago I got one of the first sets and let me tell you - I certainly did NOT find them to be better than round rings. And I pedal circles which is supposed to be the strong suit of these things. I wonder how Froome gets these things to work at all?

Interestingly, taking a close-up physical look at J.F. Bernard's
bike, mid to late 80s, the chainring proudly displayed a "Biopace"
sticker.

But a closer inspection of the chainrings revealed that they were
actually round.
