Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) rode a controlled race and kept his powder dry for the final showdown, an individual time-trial which he won by a fistful of seconds over Nairo Quintana (Movistar). More importantly, Alberto finished 18 seconds ahead of Sergio Henao (Sky) – more than enough to take his fourth title at this race (2008, 2009, 2014 and 2016). Henao, who took the points jersey, dropped to second, while Quintana nudged Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) off the podium to take third.
