Matej Mohoric wins dramatic Stage 10 as Esteban Chaves implodes

Fabio Aru's rest day press conference was held on the team bus

BC-CYC-Giro d'Italia, 130Giro leader Yates gains 3 seconds but his team strugglesAP Photo GUA103, GUA106, GUA105, GUA104, GUA102, GUA101Eds: APNewsNow.

Yates picked up three more seconds on the defending champion Tom Dumoulin by taking bonuses from the intermediate sprint, but his Mitchelton-Scott team-mate Esteban Chaves dropped from second to 39th, losing 25 minutes on innocuous terrain and claiming cryptically after the stage: "We've still got to understand my problems".

Chris Froome finished safely in the pack and moves up to 10th in the general classification, still two-and-a-half minutes adrift of Yates in the race for the pink jersey. Mohoric, a freakish descender, had escaped with 38 kilometres to go, and while Denz joined him 19 kilometres later, he ultimately didn't have enough firepower to sprint past Mohoric in the final metres.

Chaves had entered the day in second place overall but dropped behind on an early climb in the rolling 244-kilometer (152-mile) stage from Penne to Gualdo Tadino in Umbria, which was the race's longest. 'Really hard but happy I could get more time. Two minutes down on the peloton, Chaves received assistance from Bewley and two other teammates to desperately try and bring him back, while Quick-Step helped them out to try and revive the chances of sprinting favourite Elia Viviani.

Frenchman Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) retained his third place but now trails the race leader by one minute and four seconds. 34 seconds later Sam Bennett led home the peloton.

"Today's goal was to make the breakaway".

"I was going to go for the bonus sprint because I need to gain time on Dumoulin but, when I saw Pinot getting a lead out, I went past him, " Yates said. "I did at the beginning with 12 other riders but, unfortunately, because of what happened to Chaves, the peloton came across", Mahoric said.

"My crash before the opening stage in Jersualem took a whack out of me".

"I wasn t convinced I d win the sprint against Nico Denz".

Surely Froome and the Team Sky hierarchy have now got a bit of thinking to do about whether they continue chasing a lost cause, or cut their losses and pull out with an eye on the more familiar ground of the Tour de France in July.

Wednesday s 11th stage will be raced on a hilly route of 156 km from the central city of Assisi across to Osimo near the Adriatic coast.
