Stage 10, Tuesday, May 14: Cordenons - Altopiano del Montasio, 167 km

Rated Ascents:

Stage 10 finish

The Race: With 15 km to go, on the ascent of Altopiano del Montasio, two riders (Serge Pauwels, Jackson Rodriguez) remaining from the day's break were still 1min 12sec off the front. Sky had several riders at the front of the peloton driving the bunch. Bradley Wiggins had descended the tricky Passo Cason di Lanza without incident.

Ryder Hesjedal was dropped on the earlier climb, but the other contenders were in the maglia rosa group to ride the final kilometers to the summit.

With a little more than 9.5 km to go, as the climb started to bite, Rodriguez and Pauwels were caught. Sky remained at the front.

At the 8 km point Sky played its first card and sent Rigoberto Uran, a real GC threat, off the front and Astana with Valerio Agnoli went to the front of the remaining bunch. At 6 km to go Uran had a half-minute while Agnoli continued at the front of the Pink Jersey group.

At 4.4 to go Agnoli peeled off and Nibali went to the front and then dug deep to take the second place time bonus for the second intermediate sprint. Meanwhile, Uran had a 50-second lead.

With 3.4km to go as the gradient went crazy-steep, Benat Intxausti attacked, sending Wiggins and Scarponi out the back. Pozzovivo turned the screws, reducing the maglia rosa group to the best climbers: Nibali, Betancur, Pozzovivo and Santambrogio. A kilometer later Evans made it back to the leaders and led the chase in pursuit of Uran.

Uran pressed on, taking the stage and first-place time bonus and Betancur and Nibali took off to fight for second place but Betancur easily took it.
