#uae, IDK what was up with that, but they absolutely DID animate the stage. Now if I could only figure out WHY. Maybe a remote possibility of Aru picking up a few seconds? Testing the peloton's legs? Maybe putting some fatigue in those legs to help Aru when they hit Etna?

#uae knows the Sicilia roads better than most teams because they do most of their winter training there. It might have been a real plan for attack that was called off because the wrong riders were in the wrong group, someone didn’t quite have the legs to follow though with the plan or some more obskure reason. Vegard Stake Laengen, main windshield of #uae rode the breakaway from Milano to the Poggio in his pro debut, and I bet he had a longer effort on tap -  if the DS or Aru hadn’t called it off.

Maybe they will try something  similar today?
