Needing His Team Car G17-102
This was the group that was allowed to get away, although they, too, weren't given much of a leash by the peloton. On the back of the group, Enrico Battaglin (LottoNL Jumbo) raises his arm to let the race officials know that he needs his team car to come forward. He can communicate with his team car via radio, but he still needs to signal to the race officials to allow his car to come along side. The two guys ahead of him are Simone Petilli (UAE Team Emirates) and Eugeny Shalunov (Gazprom-Rusvelo).
