After a challenging couple of days, Tom Dumoulin laid his hands on the most important maglia rosa of the Giro d'Italia, the final one. Dumoulin put in a superb effort in the final time trial from Monza to Milan, to take second place on the stage and make up more than enough time to climb above Nairo Quintana in the overall standings. Dumoulin beat the Colombian by just 31 seconds with Vincenzo Nibali finishing third overall. An emotional Jos van Emden made it a doubly good day for the Dutch with the stage victory, just ahead of Dumoulin.

For a moment on the sinuous descent of the Miragolo San Salvatore, it looked as though Nairo Quintana Movistar faced graver problems at this Giro d'Italia than his hefty deficit to Tom Dumoulin Sunweb in the overall standings. By the time he had remounted unsteadily on the bike of a teammate, the maglia rosa group had disappeared from view, and Quintana braced himself for a frantic chase in the company of Andrey Amador and Winner Anacona. His expression as impassive as ever, Quintana was a picture of calm even when he had to pause to change onto his spare bike at the base of the final climb, the Selvino, though at that point, he had little idea that Dumoulin had, as padrone of this Giro, come to the head of the group of favourites and called a truce until the Colombian latched back on. A fraught finale saw first Bob Jungels Quick-Step and then Vincenzo Nibali Bahrain-Merida force the issue on the steep, narrow climb through Bergamo Alta, and continue their efforts on the white-knuckle drop to the finish that followed. If Quintana was discommoded by his crash, it hardly showed. He was safely among the man leading group that formed in the closing kilometres and sprinted to a defiant second place on the stage behind Jungels for good measure. In the end, the guys brought me back up to the peloton without complications.
