TT bikes are made for speed. To maximize the speed the geomatry and riders position maximize aerodynamics and power but minimize handling. On twisty courses even the best riders in the world have trouble with curves on a TT bike.

Spartucus laughs at a TT bikes poor handling. See below....

To follow-up on the video, this was the last stage of a 9 stage race, a 38.5K (23.9 mile) TT.

Spartucus did it in 45:59, a whopping 1:27 faster then second place averaging 50.2 Kph (31.19 mph) on a curvy course.

To put it in perspective, 2nd through 21st all finished within 1:27 of each other.
