How come Dumoulin leads by 1sec?
He won an intermediate sprint, got bonus seconds there
I know, but didn't Sagan take 2nd on another intermediate sprint? That should give him +2sec. Combined with the +6sec he got from 2nd on the stage, that makes it +5sec won today. He was +5sec behind before today's stage
He got one at the final intermediate as well, on screen it said Barguil but it was Dumolin.

There was no need for Sagan to launch so early. Trentin and GVA were still ahead of him.
I agree, he could have stayed in GVA's wheel for a bit longer. Maybe he was afraid that they would be overtaken and he would lose too much speed, I don't know.
Sagan can say it was just a tactical error that got him beat. In reality though Matthews won with so much to spare that it really didn''t make much difference

Of course you can't know if Sagan would have won or would have got beaten anyway if he rode smarter in the sprint, but the only reason Matthews won so comfortably is that Sagan sprinted so early.

yes Sagan needs to keep his mass moving on that hill, so when in doubt, lead it out, good to salvage 2nd
