Working on the Front G17-9
Bora-Hangrohe started the day with all put one of the leaders' jerseys on their shoulders. Unfortunately for Cesare Benedetti that meant that he couldn't defend his Maglia Azurro, but instead had to work for the team and the Maglia Rosa of his teammate, Lukas Postlberger. It was the whole team that road on the front keeping the five man break away in check. The team with the leader's jersey has the responsiblity of setting the pace for the peloton.
