For Stage and Placing
Michele Scarponi was laying down a blistering pace with the fastest time at the time check. It looked like he was in position to win the stage and overtake Uran for third overall. This group of cycling kit clad tifosi were equally excited to cheer one of the Italians favorites in the professional peleton. In the end Uran ride was enough to keep third by just over a minute and Nibali's ride both one the stage and secured a four minute lead in race for the Maglia Rosa.
