Chris Froome (Team Sky) still leads the race by 1-16 over Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida), but his lead has been slashed after being dropped on the finishing climb of Los Machucos on stage 17.

Froome will be hoping that his lead stays intact on stages 18 and 19, with the race likely to be decided on the Alto de l’Angliru on stage 20.
