Stage 18: Belluno to Rifugio Panarotta, 171 km
Julian Arredondo all but guaranteed himself the blue jersey with a solo victory atop Rifugio Panarotta ahead of Fabio Duarte. Meanwhile the GC underwent a major reshuffle as Pierre Rolland moved into a podium position and Cadel Evans slipped from third to ninth.
