The sun's rays just break through the clouds over Si­cily and shine down on the elite group of GC favourites, in­clud­ing Si­mon Yates, Thibaut Pinot, Ge­orge Ben­nett and Domenico Poz­zo­vivo, as they make their way up the 25km climb to the top of Mount Etna. The irst sum­mit in­ish of this year's race, on Eu­rope's most ac­tive vol­cano, lived up to its ex­plo­sive billing and the GC bat­tle erupted into life. Yates at­tacked 1.5km from the top and bridged up to his team-mate, Este­ban Chaves. The Colom­bian took the stage win, while Yates took the leader's pink jer­sey.
