With a Teammate G17-129
Nairo Quintana (Movistar) had sent his teammate, Andrey Amador, up the road as a teaser for his GC rival Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb). When the Dutchman didn't give chase, Quintana jumped out of the Gruppa Maglia Rosa and bridged across to his ally. Behind, Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) was using his teammate, Sebastien Reichenbach, to give chase. Without any teammates left with them, Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Dumoulin, had to rely on following the wheels of others and hope Quintana was gone for good.
