Caught Out G17-64
It was suspected that Bob Jungels (Quickstep) wouldn't be able to hold onto his Maglia Rosa at the top of Blockhaus, but it was a bit of a surprise to see Tejay van Garderen (BMC) dropping back to this trio. The third rider, Franco Pellizotti (Bahrain-Merida) had been aiding his team leader, Vincenzo Nibali, but was now just hoping to survive the climb. At this point they were only about 30 seconds down on those at the front, but there was still another seven and a half kilometers of climbing to go. It doesn't bode will for Tejay nor the Maglia Rosa.
