Carapaz crosses the finish line after 168 km at the same time as Jai Hindley, the Australian who is right behind him in the overall standings. As a result, there is no shift in the first two positions. Carapaz remains the leader three seconds ahead of Hindley, followed by Spaniard Mikel Landa, 1:05 back. Among the day’s losers was Portugal’s João Almeida, who lost over a minute to Carapaz, dropping to 4th overall.

The winner of the stage was Landa’s teammate Santiago Buitrago from an originally 25-strong breakaway group. The 22-year-old Colombian from the Bahrain-Victorious team shakes off his last companion Gijs Leemreize on the climb to Monterovere, the last obstacle of the day, shortly before the summit and drives a 35-second lead over the second-placed on the short descent to the finish Dutch out.
