- n. Plural form of peleton.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I have heard of people in crashes in track peletons losing fingers to the chain, as well as mechanics who were more experienced than I losing fingers to spinning track chainwheels.
Using strategies similar to those in cycling peletons, the tighter the group sticks together, the more aerodynamic and powerful it becomes.
