Lupus Racing looked around as they approached the finish line. In a UCI World Road Racing Team Time Trial the team's time is taken as the fourth rider crosses the line. So those on the front of the reduced pack look back over their shoulders to make sure they have the required number tucked onto their wheel. Most teams, including Lupus, don't manage to bring all six riders to the line together. Some of the team will exhaust themselves and then do there best to finish in hopes that the stronger riders will achieve a winning time.
