Fast as Possible G17-155
Nairo Quintana (Movistar) was going to have the best time trial of his life if he wanted to keep his Maglia Rosa. While he did ride one of his best ever, it still wasn't enough to withstand the ride of Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb). Quintana had done his best to open up as big a gap as possible on the last road stage in hopes of doing enough to hold onto the pink today. I have enjoyed the racing in this Giro and found it interesting that the final stage was a time trial instead of a road stage. Normally, the final stage is a promenade with champagne toasts along the way winding up with a made sprint for the fastmen of the sport. Instead, the Maglia Rosa and the Maglia Bianca wouldn't be decided until the last man crossed the line in Milan.
