Caleb Ewan made it a record equalling four wins from four sprint stages. Twice the bridesmaid in 2015 and 2016 Richie Porte finally got to walk down the Adelaide aisle in full bride mode (now there’s an image for you all).
We’ve had newbies take their first GT stage this week – today we had a veteran. Katusha’s Sergey Lagutin climbed the wall of Alto de la Camperona and slo-mo sprinted away from his companions Axel Domont (Ag2r) and Perrig Quemeneur (Direct Energie) to take his first Grand Tour victory at the age of 35. The GC was shook up with an attack by Nairo Quintana (yes, really!) that put the Colombian in the red jersey.
