Chris Froome: +14:13s

Yates is such a joy to watch when he's on form. He cat and moused Sivakov and Quintana on the climb and just never let up. Sivakov showed good determination to limit losses and Martin is a reliable fast finisher.

Quintana wasted a lot of energy attacking and countering. I don't think he was ever going to get enough of a cushion to ride away from anybody in the last 10km, so why not try to follow and keep closer on GC? Anyway, I don't think he'll be winning much anymore, unfortunately. He just doesn't have the stamina anymore.
Fun stage. We've been spoiled this year with great racing.

You are the Yates expert. Is Simon in top form yet or was this him not in top form? Either way, he is probably my top favourite for the Giro.

I was asking for Hindley to show something in this race and he's been solid today. It was funny when ES announcers had mistaken Martin for Froome. They were all excited at first. Their voice considerably changed after they realised it was Dan Martin: "Ah...it's just Dan Martin"... lol

Expected also more from Bora (Großschartner and especially Fabbro) today
He and most of the team came straight from an altitude training camp, they'll probably need a few days of racing until they start going. Well, better now than at the Giro (I think many of those guys who swapt their final prep race with an altitude training camp could end up loosing some time on stage 4).
