Less Than One Kilometer TOC14
Peter Stetina (Trek-Segafredo) was the next to go on the offensive. He waited a little longer than the youthful Nielson Powless (Axeon Hagens Berman). As he went under the flame rouge that de-marks the final kilometer of the stage, he had a good ten seconds on those who had set their hopes on victory atop the brutal climb. Alas, like Powless before him, Stetina couldn't hold on to his advantage and had to settle for second on the stage, and for being second overall in the General Classification.
