Hey,Ladies and Gentlemen

How do you understand the Pursuit peloton rule :

Can more than one player choose to accelerate the peloton ?

And Can I choose to accelerate it more than 1 square in one turn ?

Those rules are confusing aren't they ?

I think I understand the rule.

The teams each have an opportunity to increase the peloton, beginning with the team who is leading the peloton and working down the order until someone says yes. This is what the support rider tokens on the peloton tile do.

That team now shuffles up their support rider token at the top to show they are now leading the peloton, and hand in one of their six pursuit chips.

The peloton will move a number of spaces equal to the die roll, plus 1.

Thank you very much.

But why it s written : "A player cannot accelerate more than 2 times in a row" ??

Good question... perhaps to give another team a chance to lead the peloton, but I'm not sure.

It seems that means : you can not pursuit more than 2 consecutive turns.

I got the info from a french forum.

that the peloton could go double speed at the last two tiles and Gubban replied that it could work, but only if the tiles were not mountains!

On turn x you can accelerate the peloton. It moves one additional space and you spend one of your six pursuits. No other player can pursue with the peloton this turn (since the peloton is already pursuing).

On turn x+1 you can accelerate it again. It again adds one movement to the peloton. And costs you another pursuit. No other player can pursue this turn.

On turn x+2 you *cannot* accelerate the peloton by pursuing. Thematically, I suspect your support riders are tired from the exertion and need to rest. If another player chooses, they can pursue (they take over the lead of the peloton and take on the bulk of the workload).

On turn x+3 anyone can pursue (to a limit of one player).
