The Columbus Dispatch
The bicycle has been around for nearly 200 years, but 21st-century technology helped determine the winner of the Tour de Grandview yesterday.
Jonathan Atwell was crowned the men's pro race winner after he and three other riders crossed the finish line separated by fractions of a second. Upon reviewing video of the finish frame by frame on a MacBook laptop, race officials determined that Atwell, 30, beat out Ryan Knapp by inches.
"None of us really knew," Atwell said, recalling the anxious conversation the riders shared during a cool-down lap after the finish.
Said Knapp: "I felt like I was as likely to come in fourth as I was to be first."
