I only took a few photos, mostly of Fabio Aru, at Montecampione, but my friend Jean-Claude Faucher gave me some of his wonderful photos to post here.
Jean-Claude got some great shots of Aru, Quintana, and Rolland as they crossed the line.
Jean-Claude's shots of Evans and Geniez after the finish:

And a couple of my finish area shots, Hesjedal and Rubiano Chavez:
And finally, one last Fabulous Fabio smile, by Jean-Claude:
