"I thought I was going to lose a lot more, so I'm happy".

"I'm not anxious", Yates said.

After producing a solo performance that rekindled memories of Belgian great Eddy Merckx, four-time Tour de France victor Froome completed almost five and a half hours on the bike by soloing over the line in triumph to take a grip on the race with only two stages remaining. But he cracked for the first time on Thursday's stage to Prato Nevoso, seeing his slender 58sec lead over Sunweb's Tom Dumoulin slashed in half.

Simon Yates has been in imperious form on the Giro Italia climbs and now he has backed it up with a commendable display in the time trial to make himself outright favourite for the title.

"Basically, I just have to hold on for as long as possible. Tomorrow is the only day that I know the final climb but I expect a breakaway to finally succeed".

Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) said pink jersey Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) is "untouchable" in the mountains in this year's Giro d'Italia. "Unfortunately for the fans, I might be more defensive". But also today was a big target for me. "I was trying to hold on to my position, but I died in the final 10km".

Tesla's Traffic-Aware Cruise Control system is programmed to ignore stationary roadside objects when traveling at highway speed. Now the NHTSA is also announcing that it will investigate the accident, but only for data gathering as a "special crash".

Ahead of Dennis's victory, Denmark's Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo), Britain's Alex Dowsett (Katusha-Alpecin) amd Dutchman Jos van Emden (LottoNL-Jumbo) all sat in the hot seat before German powerhouse Martin, a quadruple former world TT champion, rolled back the years with an imperious display. Just behind Froome the Italian national champion, Fabio Aru, created the one major shock with fifth place - surprising for a rider who had looked close to quitting the race on Sunday - while the Essex rider Alex Dowsett posted a respectable seventh.

"I wasn't good, I had no power".

However, France's Thibaut Pinot lost more than three minutes on the stage victor to drop to fifth overall, 1 minute, 8 seconds off Italy's Domenico Pozzovivo, who occupies the final podium position.

Yates' lead was cut to 28 seconds heading into the final three days of the Giro, which includes two brutal days in the Alps before the procession to Rome.

"After the fall at the start I didn't feel 100 percent but each day I felt better and now I'm quite good".
