Kruijswijk reinforces the pink jersey and Chaves gets second
The Dutch was the strongest of the roosters in the time trial and is strengthened in front with 2:12 on the Colombian. Valverde, third, recovering time. Nibali loses it. He won Foliforov.
Vincenzo Nibali won his first stage on the Giro on May 22, 2010, in Asolo. In this 2016, Alpe di Siusi rendered homage to the first time trial of the Italian round, in 1936 in the Terminillo. Italy expected a big day of the shark, he wanted a comeback at a designated date, but his idol failed miserably… and Steven Kruijswijk was an almost definitive blow to the general. The Dutch completed the time trial at the same time as Alexander Foliforov, the surprising winner by 16 hundredths, and walked away with Esteban Chaves 2:12; to Nibali, 2:51; and Alejandro Valverde, at 3:29.
Valverde took just 38 seconds of the drawer thanks to its excellent performance and the collapse of Nibali. Murciano, recovered from the slap of the dolomitic tappone, also took 17 seconds to Chaves, that now it takes 1:17. “Can still occur many things. We have a bit of rest and think about how to make the last week. Missing days in which important movements will happen. I am ready”. Valverde has always been optimistic about their options.

In the four first kilometers, plain false, Kruijswijk already got you half a minute. With couplings around the clock and his oversized shoulders, the leader was flying. Nibali was not going fine, it is decentered Dodge fans (more than animate, they kept bothering) and, to top it off, he suffered a breakdown and he had to change bike. In the end, 2:10 in favour of the smiling pink Jersey: “Although it hurts failing victory, I am very happy.” It is turning, but it gets face”. To date, only Chaves has responded to his fortress uphill.
Two runners of the Gazprom dominated the Chrono to the exit of the roosters. The Russian team had not shone in his debut in a large. Alexander Foliforov, exbiker of 24 years, stopped the clock in 28:39 and scored his first victory as a professional. “Unbelievable and unimaginable”, dropped in a correct English. Its leader, Sergey Firsanov, invested 30 seconds more because a car of the Tinkoff stopped him and prevented him from passing on a narrow ascending leg. “We have justified the invitation of the Organization”. Monday they will enjoy more the third Sabbath day. The Favorites will have work: think about how to manage thr
