Being in the lead after the time-trial changes my tactics for the remaining stages.

It was the first Giro d'Italia stage win for the rider from Adelaide who finished second in the opening stage time trial in Jerusalem behind Dumoulin and adds to his stage wins on the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana.

"To come here and repay the team for all their hard work and to jump back into the top ten is a big day for me". For the (general classification), it will be hard. "The first half I felt good, I had a good rhythm and I felt I was going well, I wasn't losing so much time".

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte leave, after the wedding ceremony of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St. At times it seemed as though nearly everywhere Meghan Markle went on her wedding day, a little band of helpers followed.

"But despite sporting the rainbow skin suit as world champion, last year's Giro victor was unable to overturn the 2'11" deficit he held entering the stage - leaving Yates, by far the superior climber, in pole position with three summit finishes separating the riders from the final stage to Rome. But it looks to be a day for the breakaway as the GC guys save their legs for the final three mountain stages before Sunday's ceremonial finish.
