BMC Racing showed their world champion TT speciality beating Sky by just 1s and Movistar finished third. Contador is now 5th and Quintana moves to ninth. Nibali was the biggest loser of the Fab Five and is 13th... may I add that he doesn't seem to be on the same form as last year and time lost will be his to gain in the upcoming mountains.
Fab Five: 1. Froome 2. Van Garderen (:12) 5. Contador (1:03) 9. Quintana (1:59) 13. Nibali (2:22)
Canucks: Ryder Hesjedal (36:28) 180. Svein Tuft (1h04'17")
