Once the flag is dropped Pavel Brutt, Matej Mohoric and Pierre Rolland are off and on the first climb, to Aprica, they race to a lead of 4 minutes. Following a counter-attack by Michal Schlegel, Giulio Ciccone, Julen Amezqueta and Tejay van Garderen the peloton accelerates to reduce the gap. An attack by Firsanov, Cataldo, Woods and Amezqueta is neutralised, too.
Rolland is the first rider in Aprica ahead of Mohoric and then Brutt.
The leaders gain some time in the descent and they hit the Tonale with a 2’28” lead over the peloton. Daniel Teklehaimanot, Valerio Conti and Francisco Ventoso go after them, while they are chased down by a group of 37 riders.
Rolland is the first rider on top of the Tonale. The chasers are almost 3 minutes behind the front group, the peloton is 9 minutes in arrears – a gap that will widen to 14 minutes at one point.
Mohoric descends faster than Rolland and Brutt, although Brutt reunites later on. Rolland drops back to the chase group.
Brutt can’t follow the pace on the climb to Govio and with 60 kms remaining Mohoric is accompanied by his chasers. So Rolland is back in contention, as are the likes of De Plus, Van Garderen, Conti, Costa, Monfort and Polanc. Those two are best placed in GC and for a moment Polanc can dream of the maglia rosa. However, the peloton brings the deficit back to 7 minutes in the never-ending false flat to the line.
After a lot of pseudo-attacks, Rolland is off with 8 kms remaining. On the false flat to the line he digs deep. Little by little the Frenchman opens a gap to grab his first stage win since his triumph in the Queen Stage of the 2012 Tour de France. Behind him Rui Costa is fastest, while Dumoulin finishes safely in the main group.
