Dumoulin said there was 5 guys in front of him and he was the 6th. So I think you are mistaken then

From the images, he seemed to be about midway in the peloton. He was on the outside of the corner, behind a few riders directly in front of him, yes.

Lucky for TommyD he can still sit on Yates's wheel.

I can't see Dumoulin losing the Giro after today. Froome, Aru, MAL and other pre-race favorites are out of the games. Pozzovivo, Pinot, Bennett will ride for podium. Dumoulin already last year has beaten the superior likes of Quintana and Nibali. The only surprise at this Giro is Simon Yates, he's his only rival left, but I fail to see how Yates could crack Dumoulin in the mountains now that Dumoulin can sit on Yates' wheel since Chaves is out of games.
Dumoulin has an impressive solidity, he's skilled on every terrain, great ruleur, great descender, great climber. He has a superior motor... Barring crisis, falls and strage things we're probably on the way to the first consecutive giro victory since Indurain

Apparently Oomen was also caught behind the crash of Henao. Seems he's slowly getting better as well.

Must admit I wasn't convinced about his form, but yesterday's performance gives me confidence ahead of the Zoncolan stage.

By that time, Superman will have done enough damage for him to rely on his friends to finish it off. Betancur fights only for absolute power and revenge, Superman fights for his friends. Pello Bilbao will finish off what Superman started.

I just realised this is the 5th consecutive GT for Dumoulin in which he won a stage. Pretty impressive.

For the sake of the race, Dumpoulin needs to lose about one minute over the week-end. I just don;t see it happening. He may actually lose more on Sunday than tomorrow, and I doubt it will be much.
