    Peloton time

    When the peloton crosses the finish line as a large group, how do they determine the time assigned to every rider in the group? Is it first across the line? last? average?

    First. And after that as long as there is no break in the pack all get the same time.

    This goes way back to hand timing without stopwatches. But it makes sense as it would be very dangerous if people in the pack were fighting for time at the end.
