The peloton is socialist. A Skeen. It stretches out, bunches up, chases down, swallows up. It carries along, in pockets of wind resistance, all those who need protection. It makes feats that would be impossible alone a daily achievement of hundreds. It is public transport, containing trains and autobuses. Nay! The peloton is fascist. Its logic is that of master and servants. It disciplines those who try and escape, do their own thing, form other groups. It is the ultimate in-group, protecting but not binding. To be behind it is to be unprotected from the wind and bound to lose.
