What He Could G17-139
Tom Dumoulin's (Sunweb) loyal teammate, Simon Geschke, had given all he had to give. He swung of the front and seemingly came to a complete stop. At this point there was still another seven kilometers of climbing to go. Dumoulin was already lagging those just behind him on the GC by 16 seconds. If he loses another 16 seconds he will lose his Maglia Rosa, surrendering it back to Nairo Quintana (Movistar) most likely. Although should Quintana suffer a similar fate, who knows who will be the next to don the coveted jersey. The Giro does finish with an individual time trial, the very discipline that allowed Dumoulin to take the jersey off of Quintana's shoulders to begin with.
