 Today's stage was the Queen stage and arguably the last significant stage until the final day ITT.
Ride of the day has to go to  #cajarural and Cristian Rodriguez, who held off the peloton for 17 of the final climb's 20kms.
Luis Fernandes  #boavista and the  #efapel tag team of Antônio Carvalho and Joni Brandao did try to pull the wheels off  #porto's one man Jumbo train, but that man was defending champion, João Rodrigues. Antunes's super duper domestique basically lead the entire 20kms of the final climbing, reeling in these stray attackers, one after the other.
In the end, they gave up about 3kms from home and waited for the Roglic length uphill sprint. Remarkably,  #porto failed to place either the aforementioned Antunes, or the leech like Gustav Veloso in the top two.
