I suffer from Raynauds Phenomenon, so it's an issue for me. Mates, not so.

Plus, given where you live, sub 6 isn't that common so not surprising your hands don't react well ;)

Thats the GreenEdge mechanic so looks more like he's going from a neutral bike, back onto his team issue scott, plus the position he is in looks more like he's getting off the bike he is on, not getting onto it.

It's pretty hard to see from the geometry pic.

Geometry:

I checked and seat length × sin(sta) is very close to stack, so the top is essentially parallel.

He got a neutral service bike then was getting a team issue Scott back from the mech to continue the crit.....during the shortened coverage they showed his original bike "less" a rear derailleur on top of the team car.....

Yes. They have one in 170mm they made for him some years ago, displayed in their office. I have a pic of it somewhere.

I am trying to think of a situation where someone would need a stem that long, and also what that bike handles like given that point of rotation so far out in front of the wheel.

And still need a spacer to raise the stem. Things are getting a little bit crazy

The bike will handle how you want it to handle. You can adapt to how you set your bike up where timing and reaction is up to you to figure out. If the setup was not right for the rider then they would not be able to compete at their level. The rider determines how the bike handles with the given setup not the other way around. If the bike dictates how you handle it then you have the wrong set up.

I think you have one detail backwards there- pros can ride well on almost anything. They aren't racing criteriums and races are rarely won on descents especially if you're a domestique like him
