  • On a day in which the weather conditions dampened the hoped-for fireworks in the general classification battle over five categorised climbs, Narv'ez and Mark Padun (Bahrain McLaren) battled it out after escaping from a 14-man lead group.
  • But Padun suffered a mechanical issue with little more than 20km of the 204km stage from Cesenatico to Cesenatico remaining and despite valiantly chasing down Narv'ez he ran out of legs.
  • Narv'ez, 23, kept the power down to extend his advantage in the closing kilometres, winning by almost a minute.
  • It was a day of consolidation for Joao Almeida (Deceuninck-Quick Step) who retained the leader's pink jersey, preserving his 34-second lead over Wilco Kelderman (Sunweb).
