    LOL, you don't think I know there can be, and is, payoffs in cycling? Your misunderstanding of my posts is also startling. What I'm saying is, that in THIS race, there is NO WAY that guy fixed it for Fabian. Oh...yeah, they talked during the run-in, and then the guy stopped pedaling just short of the line, therefore he is fixing the race. TINFOIL HATS, UNITE!

    I first watched the race dead tired Sunday night. I did not notice that he stopped pedaling. Then this thread. I watched the link to the French coverage in here and it was obvious he stopped well after he was beaten.

    Then Monday evening I notice a replay! I watched the very end. I watched carefully and it does NOT SHOW that he stopped pedaling at all. I'm not saying he did not stop pedaling. The shot is zoomed in and by the time Fabian crosses the line he is the only one in the frame.

    Long shots with long lenses often make races look much closer than they really are. (Not saying it was not close, but hey are flying and 0.2 seconds is easily more than a bike length).
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.
