Can Ulissi hang on over the big climb? I mean his form is great, today was 5 km @ 9%, tomorrow will be 9 km @ 8%. I think his advantage is enough that he can do it, especially since Chaves is a bit banged up and Pogacar and Polanc are both on his team.
Unless he cracks badly, I can't see Ulissi losing this. UAE is by far the strongest team here. Even in case he loses some time on the climb (which doesn't seem likely), Polanc and Pogacar will work hard on the descent to bring him back.
