The stage was won by Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) making him the new maglia rosa.
Commenting on the first Time Trial at the 100th Giro, winner of the stage four UAE Team Emirates’ Jan Polanc said: “I felt really good during the Time Trial and I’m quite happy with my performance. I don’t usually take part in a Time Trial with the aim of competing against the top riders of the General Classification. However I’m very pleased with today and feel I have succeeded in achieving a great result. My performance was better than many riders who will be contesting the final victory. I would like to thank the team’s trainers and give some credit to the performance of my Colnago K.one bike“.
