Roglic not fully cracked, but best hope is probably for 3rd on this Giro. Podium is not a lock, either.
I sure hope he podiums. He'll have done it against tremendous odds. Crappy team support and crappy team Car support, 2 crashes and a bad stomach.

No team cars behind the Carapaz/Nibs group, so gap is probably short to Roglic.
It is plenty of cars behind
No TEAM cars dude - which means the gap is less than a minute :)
You're wrong. He's 1'20" behind.
Too many posts to follow properly, but the ones I saw seemed to align with what I thought the likely gaps were.

Landa is close but I think he will not crack that bad and if he drops from podium in the mountains he will gain back time in the TT.

What is going on with Lopez. That performance is the weirdest thing since Froome!
too cold i think
Most likely. Getting dropped on the flat when he looked strong on the climb looks like he got very cold.
A bit of the same problem Carapaz had when they the flat after the descent, you have to cover yourself it's cycling 101!
Moviestar slowed a bit, then he looked fine after a while, but you can't get those risks!
 
Unless Roglic somehow bounces back, which i think is unlikely, then Landa could still finish on the podium. Actually, with todays rain, and Carapaz visually hurting due to cold and rain (and not getting a jacket), i wouldn't be surprised if he gets sick the next few days.
