GUEST,DaveRo BS: How Do Bicycle Races Work? (32) RE: BS: How Do Bicycle Races Work? 15 May 15


My apologies. I've never heard the word peloton used in that sense.

The Tour de France is certainly big business in France, and lately the UK since there was a British team and a British winner a couple of years ago. It's the only race I follow every day, though there are plenty of others - the Giro d'Italia is on at the moment. One race a year is enough for me - I can't afford the time! And the drug-taking has tainted it: these days if I see an exceptional performance, a breakaway on a mountain climb say, I can't help wondering whether it's the athlete's own effort. Great pity.
