“In these cases – Vincenzo Nibali smiles bitterly – we can only say that it was not a right day. Since the morning, I have felt I have no great feelings. I lost a few seconds from Carapaz but we have limited the damage”.
“It was the classic day that comes after the fatigue in the stage with the Mortirolo – comments Domenico Pozzovivo – and in the last kilometers we paid a little for yesterday’s effort. Good for the pink jersey that continues to amaze ”.
Today in Anterselva, solo win for the French Nans Peters in front of the Colombian Esteban Chaves. In the overall standings, Richard Carapaz gained 7 seconds on Vincenzo Nibali who now has a 1:54 gap from the South American rider.
Tomorrow the 18th stage is downhill almost all the way to Santa Maria di Sala. A finale with a bunch sprint is very likely.
