But stress was palpable in the pack toward the end, with several crashes happening at the back of the peloton. At the time I wasn't that fazed because I thought it didn't matter, I wasn't going to be in the GC hunt anyway. Otherwise, this is a day to gain yet more clarity in the General Classification and King of the Mountains competition.
