|...there was the US Pro race in Philly a few years back in which an Italian rider (don't recall who) sprinted to a seemingly easy victory and raised his arms in victory only to be passed by the field as they continued to ride the two additional mini-laps of the Ben Franklin Parkway before the actual finish. The poor guy was a little dejected ;)
