Excellent stage capped off by an attacker winning.
I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Such tactical ineptitude from Androni - The team had no idea when to attack - The way the stage was raced in the first 140 kms, always gave a breakaway a chance in the final part of the stage.

Mohoric is a class act. Great win.

Day after the rest day always has something unexpected going on. Very entertaining stage.

Wth? Denz closed a 30-40 sec gap to Mohoric and Villella on his own and still did phenomenal efforts after closing in on them.

Sometimes I wonder if people even watch their television :o

Mohoric broke off the front of the peleton and once he rode up to Villella he was doing most of the riding. Denz then closed the gap mostly on the 10km descent where he took some risks but Mohoric was clearly the stronger of the two since Denz had used up so much energy just to get up to Mohoric.

Froome's italian is good. Definitely humanizes him :p HE put a tombstone on Chaves when asked about today's stage "yeah, the only man that LOST today was Chaves". Clear and simple

I couldn't watch the stage today. Can anyone provide a quick summary? :)

Very happy to see Mohoric win! :) What a great rider he's become. But I also feel sorry for Denz. :(

Will have to watch the highlights later

Great story. What a time to be alive.

But I guess you confuse strongest with fastest.

Chaves simply suffered from post rest day syndrome according to Chris Juul.

Chaves distanced early, lost over 25 minutes.
Rest of the favourites finished together.

And Dumoulin had a small crash on the last descend but could return easily.

Apparently Chaves was having issues with pollen allergie today. Meanwhile Froome was caught just using his asthma puffer completely shameless live on TV. He should **** himself and dissappear!

It’s perfectly within the rules to use it with proper dosage?
