It was a little odd to see the Maglia Rosa pull off to the side of the road and toss his bike. The TV motos stayed fixed on him as he walked towards the slope at the side of the road. They, like I, were trying to figure out what Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) was up to, particularly when he stepped away from the bike, removed his shirt and then pulled down his shorts. At that point the camera (and I if it hadn't) looked away. Apparently Dumoulin was having intestinal issues, not the best thing on a 222 kilometer stage. The mechanic, who normally will jump out of the car with a replacement wheel, ran towards his team leader with what looked like a roll of toilet paper.
