Amazingly eagle eyed people might notice that this chart doesn't include the 2 seconds Thomas de Gendt won in an intermediate sprint on Stage 9

Including that stage, 12 stages had an impact on the relative times of the top 5

Hesjedal's lead over Rodriguez peaked at 19 seconds after the TTT. Rodriguez's lead peaked at 31 seconds going into the final stage.
