Javier Moreno has been booted from the Giro after an altercation with Sky's Diego Rosa. Jan Polanc took out the stage. Bob Jungels replaced Quick-Step Floors's teammate Fernando Gaviria as the overall leader and has a six-second advantage over Thomas. Adam Yates (Orica-Scott) is four seconds further back.

Very Happy

Gaviria is a beast. His win in Paris Tours last year was fantastic.

Silvan Dillier takes his maiden GT victory stage however the GC positions remain unchanged apart from Nibali who moves into fourth spot with Quintana also loitering.

Valerio Conti joined the exclusive club of those who crashed when racing uphill. Decent stage to watch. Gorka Izagguire took the win.

This is a really good tough stage today.

.... although apparently it was severely disrupted by a motorbike collision which took out Thomas & others.

Yeah, motorbike just stopped and took out most of the Sky team, and Yates. A matter of how much Quintana wins by, now.

Bad luck for Thomas & Yates. They were well in contention. Quintana the Movistar team have been criticized for pushing on after the stack & not waiting for the GC riders involved to rejoin the peleton which would have been the gentlemanly thing to do.

Rightly criticized. There is an unwritten law.

No issue with what movistar did. Each of the teams has done the same before, ie, maintain pace when others have crashed. Orica themselves did the same by last year resulting in a Michael Mathews win.

Shit happens. Organiser error, not movistar's.

Domoulin smashed the time trial, and Thomas found himself back in some contention just outside the top 10 in the GC. Could be a closer race than first expected. Froome will be quietly contented that Quintana has a bit of a fight (considering he's attempting the Giro tour double).

Great race for him. Won his fourth stage. Should be the end of sprinters. Greipel's been desperately disappointing.

Great day for Dumoulin. He wins the stage & increases his lead over Quintana by about 24 seconds.

Tom Dumoulin is "unwell".

http://www.eurosport.fr/cyclisme/tour-d-italie/2017/video-tour-d-italie-malade-tom-dumoulin-a-eu-un-petit-probleme-en-bas-du-stelvio_sto6178150/story.shtml




16:02:57 CEST

Dumoulin has stopped. We dont need to see this... it's a comfort break.


16:03:17 CEST

Just before the final climb as well. That's not a good sign at all for the race leader.


16:04:57 CEST

He's back on his bike and chasing but that's really not what the race leader would have wanted and Zakarin has attacked with the race leader off the back.


16:06:50 CEST

Dumoulin is coming back through the cars as Zakarin is brought back. Movistar and Bahrain come to the front and slow the pace down somewhat. They're looking to wait for the race leader but he's losing a lot of group. He's around 40 seconds. Do they wait because I don't think he has the strength to come back at the moment? He has ten Dam with him now.


16:07:59 CEST

Bahrain Merida take up the pace setting as Dumoulin's race hangs by a thread. They're not waiting, that's clear as Nibali moves his men to the front. It was badly timed nature break but if he had no choice...


16:08:52 CEST

He's almost a minute down on the Quintana group as he comes through the cars with ten Dam now dropped. This is going to be huge talking point. Will Quintana take advantage?


16:09:26 CEST

He's losing more and more time. If this continues then Dumoulin will be out of pink by the end of the stage and we still have 11km to go on this climb.


16:10:27 CEST

The Nibali/Quintana group have put 1:20 into Dumoulin. To be fair to Quintana he's not put his men on the front but he's not asked Bahrain to wait either.


16:12:47 CEST

Almost a minute and thirty for the Nibali/Pinot/Quitana group. It's hold at that point but they've not really gone full gas at this point. Dumoulin is coming through the dropped riders but he's not looking like he has the legs as we enter the final 30km.


16:14:27 CEST

The maglia rosa is holding the gap but we've still not seen any real intent from.. Movistar but now they push as Amador is caught and the pace increases. The race is well and truly on as up front Landa, Kruijswijk and Hirt share the pace. They have 1'30 on the Quintana group.


16:16:11 CEST

Dumoulin shakes his head but there's little he can do as a Movistar rider marks him. The gap is still holding at 90 seconds so the race leader is managing the situation quite well considering how things looked at the start of the climb. There's still a long, long way to go though.


16:18:07 CEST

And Anton is caught by the Nibali/Pinot/Quintana group as Dumoulin gets out of the saddle. Bahrain move back to the pace setting and he's starting to come back. Quintana can afford to wait but will he attack before the summit? Whatever he does it's going to cause a huge debate.
