Embracing the Speed TA16
Fernando Gaviria Rendon (Etixx-Quickstep) did a great job paying the team back for all of its hard work on the road to Montalto di Castro. Just missing out on the stage victory was the rising star for Orica-GreenEdge, Caleb Ewan. Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) is still looking for a European victory in his snappy new Rainbow Jersey. Today he missed the podium, too. Others that made the painting, but not the podium, are Leigh Howard (IAM Cycling) and Sacha Modolo (Lampre Merida). Etixx-Quickstep also did enough to keep Zdenek Stybar in the Maglia Azurra of the race leader.
