Is It Enough? G17-16
Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) was thrilled to take the stage in Tortoli. He had a rough time out on the road prior to the flat run in to town. Behind him Fernando Gavira (Quickstep), Kristian Sbaragil (Dimension Data), Enrio Battaglin (LottoNL Jumbo) and Ryan Gibbons (Dimension Data) just could not catch the wheel of the "Gorilla" The fast man for Orica-Scott, Caleb Ewan had been bumped by Gavira, forcing him to unclipped from his pedal to stay upright. With that move, Ewan had no chance to vie for stage victory. With his win and the 10 second bonus, Greipel had enough time to take over the Maglia Rosa of race leader.
