*co came back with crushing performance today with another 1-2 in Asiago. This time it was turn of the "other" Muñoz and right behind him came Stage 5 winner Rubio. Although beaten in the final run-in, Vlasov crossed the line in third and got a podium result at last.

Here was the profile of the day:

By the mid-stage HC climb of the Monte Grappa, maglia rosa Donovan was riding tempo in the peloton as solo breakaway Marlon Gaillard tried to salvage something from a bruising week for Vendée U.

Early race leader Wildauer attacked from a chasing group which included Rubio, Muñoz and Vlasov but which had only been allowed about 30 seconds of rope by the bunch.

The Austrian soon fell away as the chase group was whittled down to the trio mentioned and the peloton increased the pressure behind. Gaillard was finally caught and also dropped with about 25km to go.

At that point, the race exploded. By the finish, the trio had about a minute on U23 LBL winner Almeida #axeon, about 1'30"-2' on a couple of chasing groups of chasers and >2' on the peloton.

Due to a lack of specific information (one or two tweets an hour from the organisers), it's hard to figure out the exact circumstances, but it would seem that previous maglia rosa holder Osorio *co was in one of the chasing groups in between the trio and the bunch, so he finds himself once again in pink tonight.
