The Peloton

The peloton (from French, originally meaning ‘platoon’) is the main group of riders in a race. Riders in a group save energy by riding close behind other riders, (drafting or slipstreaming). The reduction in drag is dramatic; drag can be reduced to as little as 5%-10% when riding in the middle of a group. Exploiting this potential energy saving leads to complex cooperative and competitive interactions between riders and teams in race tactics.
