Keegan Swenson & Jason Sager in a dead heat.

Today, at the Utah Cyclocross Series Race #7 (held at Wheeler Historic Farm, in Murray, Utah), Keegan Swenson (Cannondale Factory Racing) and Jason Sager (Team Jamis) finished in a dead heat for first place; which we believe to be a first, not only in history in Utah Cyclocross, but in cyclocross in general, anywhere.

The FinishLynx camera we use at the finish can detect time differences down to about 1/2000th of a second. That’s 0.0005 seconds; and yet in this photo finish, to the pixel (even at highest resolution), this race was too close to call as anything other than a dead heat; a tie for first place.

I don’t think it gets any more amazing.
