To the Line G17-118
It came down, literally, to a two man sprint to the line in Bormio. It was the Italian's turn to finally claim a stage in their own Tour. Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) was able to out sprint Mikel Landa (Sky) to the line to take the stage. His win today moved him up to third place overall just a minute and a half off of the lead. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) took third on the day closing in on the lead of Dumoulin. He is now only 30 seconds out of pink. It will be interesting to see if Dumoulin is feeling better for stage 17 and how the racing will progress now.
