American Taylor Phinney TIES For Third At U-23 Road Race World Championships
Yes, even in the age of advanced photo finish cameras, you can still tie at a world championship event. Yesterday, for the first time in world championship history, the young American Taylor Phinney tied with Canadian Guillaume Boivin for third behind John Degenkolb, of Germany, and the Aussie winner, Michael Matthews. The tie marks the first in the UCI’sÂ history that they have been unable to determine a finish at a world championship event. Both riders were brought out onto the somewhat awkward podium and both awarded medals. Higher resolution photo after the break (click to blow up.) What do you think? Can you pick a winner?
