He made the frontpage in all of the Ecuadorian newspapers, this is huge.

Nice to have been on the wagon, at least when he jioned Movistar in late 2016. :D Reminded me a bit of how Yates how away on Etna, he is an explosive type of climber so maybe this will be his bread and butter, attacking with 1-1,5 k to go.

It's also a different type of climb to how he's cut his teeth so far, preferring steeper ascents, so getting away on a 5% tempo grinder is a new thing for him even if it's mainly as he isn't marked too tightly (yet).

Great performance today! I am hoping he can keep on his form until the end of the Giro.
Riposa in pace, Michele!

Good to see young riders like Carapaz, O'Connor, Oomen, Schackman and Haig all riding well.

I hope he will get a free role in the Vuelta, he can do so much more than leading the pack climb after climb.

That's highly unlikely as Movistar has already stated Valverde and Landa are headed to the Vuelta (most likely Quintana as well). Valverde is still chasing a ton of history there as well.

Chaves and A.Yates are riding the Vuelta - Have to think Haig will lead the Aussie team at the World's this year.

Great result, for a moment I actually thought he was going to win. He looked impeccable.

His priority right now is to retain or even climb in the GC. I also find it awesome to read he lives together with his fellow Ecuadorian Jhonnatan Narvaez.

When he started to attack Lopez today, the distance to Yates immediately decreased by 10s. What a pity, that he did not try to push more.
