Jumping Early G17-126
If Nairo Quintana (Movistar) is going to reclaim the Maglia Rosa from Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) he is going to have to not only pull back 31 seconds, but he will have to have time in hand before the final time trial. Quintana must have been hoping to pull an early surprise on the Dutchman as he went on the offensive with another 53 kilometers left to race. The catagory 2 climb up the Passo Gardena seemed like a good place to start the effort. He definitely got the jump on the rest of the GC hopefuls, question is, "Will it stick?"
