The most coveted cycling trophies may be the pavé or the trident, but the trophy most laden with meaning has got to be Trofeo Senza Fine—trophy without end—for Giro d’Italia, first introduced in 1999. It’s a copper ribbon formed into a spiral, engraved with all the past winners’ names. It is truly without end because RCS plans to extend the strip as needed to accommodate the names in the future. The Trofeo illustrates not only the switchbacks of Giro’s climbs, but also the winner’s symbolic ascension into legend status: No matter where his career leads, he can always say “I won the Giro. Let’s do this.” For a word nerd like me, the cleverest feature of the trophy is its hyperbola silhouette. “Hyperbola” comes from Greek for “excessive” because when isn’t the Giro excessive? From the real snowpocalypse of 1988 Passo di Gavia to the confetti snowpocalypse at every podium, it’s not the Giro if it doesn’t over-promise and over-deliver.

From the third photo, it looks to me like a pedalstrike is the ultimate cause of Martin’s fall in LBL. That said, I agree with Cosmo Catalano that if you fall in the last corner of LBL, running second, you get to make up whatever reason for the fall that you want. These images are all in order, and consecutive, and account for about 40 degrees of pedal rotation. One thing is for sure, right after his left pedal goes through the downstroke in the third frame, he starts to lose it in the fourth frame.

Note the part where I am agreed with.
