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.

And here are a few of my own photos. Aru, overcome with emotion after winning the stage, wept in the arms of an Astana soigneur, but on the podium and at the press conference, he couldn't stop smiling.
