The Valdobbiadene time trial was always likely to shake up the general classification at the Giro d’Italia, but nobody rose through the top end of the rankings quite like UAE Team Emirates climber Brandon McNulty.

The American began the day just outside the top 10 but ended it within touching distance of the podium, placing third behind the Ineos Grenadiers pair of Filippo Ganna and Rohan Dennis in the rolling test through the vineyards in the hinterland of Conegliano.
