Mitchelton should pull this break back to open the breakaway battle again. Their rouleurs are gonna get dropped today, and tomorrow anyway.

For all their success, Quick Step are completely useless when it comes to supporting a GC rider.

It would be daft to even try to get any bonus seconds. He'd be sprinting against Trentin, Mezgec, Viviani, Morkov, Van Poppel etc all trying to protect their GC riders and even if he got anything out of it he'd be cooked for the climb
