Just catching up with the Cycling Podcast analysis of the race and I think they've called it completely wrong. Bettiol put in a searing attack at one of the key climbs and got a gap over the favourites. He didn't escape quietly in a lull in the action or was aided by a crash amongst the favourites.
The reason they didn't catch him on the run in was because they wouldn't work together, but that always happens regardless of who is up the road.
