Stage 4 winner...

 *nz Heyden McCormick! (Team BridgeLane) :win

...of the Bell Lap.  :-x :lll :flustered

Poor dude. He was super aggressive in the final descent prior to the line—serious super-tuck while pedaling the whole way. He managed a gap over the peloton, and went all out. Only to raise his arms in the air...for what was only the start of the final lap. 

But there may be more to it than what was immediately apparent.

You have to feel for anyone putting on such a public display, only to have their dreams dashed in front of the finish-line crowd, with all the cameras rolling. If the bell was rung incorrectly ahead of time, then it's really hard to fault him, especially with all the noise of the finishing area only adding to any confusion.

If it's any consolation though, Hayden was awarded the Most Aggressive Rider jersey on the day. Hard to argue with that, I suppose.

All's well that ends well?
