Nibali attacked 6.6km from home and put almost a minute into nearest rival Alejandro Valverde, who finished fourth on the stage but moved up to second overall. Rafal Majka was second on the stage with Leopold Konig third while Australian Richie Porte, who started the stage second overall, cracked on the final climb to drop down the order.
