Majka rues bad day in Giro d'Italia time trial

Rafal Majka (Tinkoff-Saxo) saw his podium chances edge further away as he slipped to seventh in the general classification after the Cima Grappa time trial. The Polish rider put in a solid performance, finishing seventh on the day, but it wasn’t enough to match the huge performance from fellow podium contender Fabio Aru (Astana) - who stormed to second place. Majka lost more than three minutes to the Sardinian, and dropped 1:31 to Pierre Rolland (Europcar).
