(Innovation Origins) TU Eindhoven calculates ideal position of a cyclist in a peloton

Description

“At the very back, the air resistance is very low, but there is less opportunity to react to attacks and falls happen more often. So for classification riders or sprinters, I think the best position is in row 6, 7 or 8: then you are sufficiently shielded by other riders and you’re near enough to the front.”
