A Giro d'Italia summit stage win one day, a 1-32-minute loss the next – Chris Froome (Sky) has "no regrets" with his hard push to win on the Monte Zoncolan.

Froome heads into the final week in seventh overall, 4-52 down on leader and fellow Brit Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott). He fell behind with 18 kilometres remaining on stage 15 and lost more time in Sappada, 24 hours after raising his arms in celebration.
