 Another day in paradise for the fish, or a plod through purgatory for the peloton. More water in the Rai electrics than Michael Schär's bidon meant another day of long spells without race coverage. Fortunately, we got to see most of the action.
The riders started out in sunshine on some testing terrain and the battle for the breakaway to some time to serve up 6, then finally 8 riders.
Matej Mohorič worked tirelessly for young Gino Mäder resulting in those invaluable 12 winning seconds at the finish.
Behind, the battle of the GC contenders saw last years runner up Hindley as the next challenger to fall by the wayside. A few others struggled, when Egan Bernal attacked and took Evenepoel, Ciccone and Dan Martin along for the ride.
However, the greatest damage was done, not on a climb, but in the high valley, mid race. Here the wind blew and Ineos, in the shape of Ganna, and Castroviejo destroyed half the peloton and the maglia rosa in the process.
