Rabobank’s Peter Weening (on left) won the 8th stage of the 92nd Tour de France, beating T-Mobile’s Andreas Klöden at the end of a tough 231.5km race from Pforzheim in Germany to Gérardmer, France, on Saturday.

Judges said it came down to a 2mm margin at the line and gave Weening the win over Klöden. If you are not sure how small 2mm is, do yourself a favor and find a tape measure. For a 231km race to be decided by 2mm is both incredible (a true photo finish–only way judges could determine winner) and heartbreaking for Klöden.

Watch this finish if you can. These two guys finished on pure guts, cause after that distance and the climbing they did to get to the lead that is about all that is left–what a fight–WOW!
