All I see in Pic. 4 is Buddy Lee still sprinting and Alex not sprinting. I'm starting to feel really dumb.

Look at what Alex is looking at. It's not the finish line.

You don't get it? OK, just imagine a really buff guy off to the side instead. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

He's looking at them in pic 3, actually. Not pic 4.

Edit: Nevermind. I can't count. I thought there were 4 pictures total. I guess I was distracted.

You could even argue over which cyclist is the winner there. It's a "We're all winners" kinda thing.

I thought the finish line was where the "omfg!! girl!! with breasts!!" was standing and the LHS guy kept sprinting past it and made a bit of a fool of himself.

Reality is disappointing.
