While Maxime Pinot (FRA1) is managing to increase his lead, the chasing pack is falling apart. Patrick von Känel (SUI2) is on a good comeback and just rounded Turnpoint 9 Mont Blanc, but is still 60km behind the leaders. After him, Simon Oberrauner (AUT2) is 15km behind. If he can take the straight line that is. The other athletes had to go around. The next one after Simon in sixth place is Aaron Durogati, but he is on the ground just after Passy.
