It's not like Carapaz, Bardet and Landa didn't want to gap the rest. They just couldn't get enough time on them cause they weren't much stronger than Almeida (they only had better accelerations). Sure, a gap of 10-20 seconds was possible but it's not like they could kill Almeida today, they weren't strong enough.I was worried early on the climb, but in the end it should be his rivals who should be worried. They could have dropped him but didn't. They might rue the day next week.
