Tom Dumoulin Outclimbs Quintana

On a 5% grind the ITT stage winner shook Nairo Quintana off his wheel, not by a nose either. Was Quintana starting his recovery cool down early or what? He lost 14 seconds in the last 250 meters.

Man today's stage was awesome!
Doumalin was a shark out there, O loved how when he came up to Quintana, isntead of just doing the easy thing and sitting on his wheel, he just went to the front and blew it up.
Maybe we are starting to see someone that can beat Froome in a year or two.

Well, Dumoulin showed no weakness today. There are still mountains to come, but he's looking really strong.

It was cool to see Quintana get second in a sprint, even if it was a sprint among climbers. ;-)

If you watched the stage today, did Quintana make any attempt to slow down the peloton when Dumoulin had his emergency?

I didn't watch it, but according to the CyclingNews report the "gentlemans' agreement" held for a brief time, until Zakarin (who I think was sitting 4th on GC, about 3 minutes down) attacked on the climb. Quintana and Nibali both followed, and everybody went hard from then on.

And once they went hard, it was incredible racing from then on! Kudos to Nibali for some great descending skills.
