This was the stage when many pundits expected Nairo Quintana to dance on the pedals and destroy Tom Domoulin on the mountain slopes of the Oropa. All the pre stage noise was about an explosive Marco Pantani like day from Nairo Quintana ending with Tom Domoulin distanced and toiling not to lose the magical Maglia rosa…

Well it did not work out that way when unexpectedly Quintana cracked in the final kilometer as Tom Domoulin stormed to a spectacular stage 14 win on the slopes of the daunting Oropa mountain… Domoulin now leads Quintana by 2-47 minutes…

Team Movistar now have it all to do if they are to get Nairo Quintana back into the Maglia rosa and win the Giro d’Italia 2017.
