Why is a completed ride position different to live position result?

Searched this up but can’t seem to find an answer.

Live reporting at the finish of a ride was ~40th position but as I crossed the line the results page showed me as ~120th. Why?
A friend who did the ride finished 20th but when you compare the distance we traveled over the 45mins there was about a 7km difference (me doing the slightly longer distance).
The final position doesn’t bother me, it was a ride after all, but not understanding why there is such a difference and how this is worked out does.

Timed group ride?
Consider the list random and therefore meaningless; distance travelled is not accounted for.
