    Another great stat courtesy of PCS. Ryder Hesjedal has 5 career wins, and one of those is the Giro

    Crash just as the action started again has split the race into pieces.

    Crash - difficult time to get back in, but was a fair way back in the peloton, doesn't look like anyone in the GC affected

    Indeed it was, with a stunning ride to the top of the Stelvio. Was a great race that year

    Gaveria goes really long but Milan had a great leadout, no way anyone can beat him.

    Alpecin need to bring a different sprinter

    They're not the same without MvdP in the leadout...!

    Lidl gave an absolutely perfect leadout there - after their troubles earlier on, very strong.

    When they know they've got the best sprinter, the leadout just lays it all on the line.
