A Huge Effort G17-30
Jan Polanc (UAE Team Emirates) was the sole survivor from the early break of the day. With just three kilometers left to race, he had over a minute and a half on the remnants of the peloton. It would be touch and go, but it was looking like this would be one of those rare times that the break away succeed. Spoiler alert, he did take the stage by a whole ten seconds over the closest chaser. He was too far down on GC to take over the Maglia Rosa, but I think the stage victory was his target. He now as one two stages of the Giro in his career.
