The Peloton on the gruelling "Muro di Donelasco" ascent. No, the cameraman wasn't in any helicopter,  just in car down on the road, and the guys were tackling this awful ascent (just about 1-km-long, but with a gradient up to more than 20 %). Of course this peloton wouldn't stay so regrouped for a long time.
