Apart from the stage win, there's not much at stake anymore. Theoretically, Sam Benett could still take the points jersey away from Elia Viviani...

Team Corridore punti
1      #ciclamino      VIVIANI Elia      306
2      #bora      BENNETT Sam      232
3      #androni      BALLERINI Davide      127

...but with a 74 point deficit on a stage with a maximum of 90 points to be achieved (50 at the finish, 2x20 at the intermediate sprints), Viviani basically just needs to stay on the bike to have this one in the bag.

#pink GC (Froome), #blue mountain jersey (Froome) and team classification are all safely in Sky's hands, Lopez holds the #white white jersey for the best young rider, and #androni Androni leads the intermediate sprint competition (Ballerini) and breakaway competitin (Frapporti) by a big enough margin not to run a risk of getting threatened anymore today.

One thing not decided yet though is the "Combattività generale" ranking, that's based on points handed out for being classified high up at the finish, intermediate sprints and mountains.

Team Corridore punti
1      #androni      BALLERINI Davide      62
2      #quickstep      VIVIANI Elia      54
3      #mitchelton      YATES Simon      54
4      #androni      FRAPPORTI Marco      50

So with 1 to 5 points on the table for the top 5 at each intermediate sprint and 1 to 6 for the top 6 at the finish, Viviani is still in the game. I guess Savio will be quite interested in those 4000 Euro though and Ballerini will secure it at one of the intermediate sprints.
