WHAT IS A GRUPETTO?
A grupetto is a group of cyclists behind the leading peloton in a road cycling race. The grupetto forms on mountain stages as non-climbers fall off the back of the peloton and ride to the finish in a group. This saves energy and is a way of keeping up morale, helping to ensure that they don’t get eliminated for being too much slower than the average rider.
