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.
