You know, your theory is probably the most accurate. The guy was just totally spent, and at that point it was probably even difficult to hold form. I know that before I got my dedicated TT bike, I time trialed my road bike sans aero bars. Sometimes, I would be so spent, I couldn't even stay in the drops anymore, and would revert to the hoods all the while trying to tuck as aero as possible.
