Getty Images photographer Bryn Lennon used an off-camera strobe (flash) to capture Garmin-Cervelo racing by in the 2011 Tour de France's team-time trial. An assistant held the strobe aloft with a boom high and to the left of Lennon. The quick duration of light flashed by the strobe freezes the action. The background and riders on the tail of the pace line fade to dark because the output of light from the strobe falls off after a certain distance.
