I think TJVG dropped a few seconds not sure about anyone else.
According to RAI, he came in with the others.

Okay thanks for the information.
But I think Pozzovivo lost a few seconds? Or was that tiny Ag2r rider coming in behind while paced by a teammate someone else?

Pozzo was on Thomas wheel.

Smart by Gorka. Really nice win for him! He has taken a step up this year.

A little disappointed that an attacking rider like Dumoulin didnt join in with Landa, 1 man wasn't enough.
I thought that as well. Instead you had FDJ and Sunweb closing him down; they should at least have made Movistar do the work. The onus is on the race favourite in that situation, tire his guys out, not your own.
 
Beautiful stage! Too bad for Conti, he was undoubtedly the strongest. I'm kind do surprised Movistar let Gorka go in that break. That's one less mountain domestique for tomorrow.

Amador did some work.

On the Eurosport commentary can anyone also here the female Colombian commenter always taking in the back ground?

I think it's the Italian woman who is always on the finish line. You can hear her at different points of the commentary. She is part of the Giro organization I think. The Eurosport commentators are calling the race from the finish as far as I know that's why her voice seems so loud in the background.

She's speaking Spanish, not Italian

Well it seems to be the same woman every year so she must work for the Giro organizers.

I wonder if you're talking about Goga. She's Mexican and one of the most popular cycling announcers in Latin America. I believe she's working for a Colombian network this year, but she used to work for ESPN.

I know he did a bit, but everyone should be leaning on Quintana and Movistar way more in that position. Pinot and Dumoulin aren't helping themselves to win the race by doing the job of the favourites to neutralize attacks. The more chaotic and unpredictable, the better chances they have. If they turn it into a mano a mano on the climbs and TTs alone - they lose.
