Looking for Some Seconds G17-55
Mikel Landa (Sky) was the first of the GC favorites to make a move on the final climb before the line. Landa and most of the others sat just ten seconds off of the lead of Bob Jungels (Quickstep). Most expected the day to be quiet in the race for the overall lead, but then the leader of Team Sky took a page out of his teammates, Chris Froome's Tour de France play book. He may have gained a few seconds on the others at first, but he could have been served just as well by stopping in to the bar for all the good it did. Quickstep didn't seem to be in the mood to reliquish the Maglia Rosa just yet.
