It was two British riders who perhaps pulled off the most impressive rides of the day, with Team Sky's Geraint Thomas and Orica-GREENEDGe's Adam Yates finishing sixth and seventh on the stage respectively.

Thomas's performance puts him fifth on GC, while Yates continues to develop into a climber to watch in future. More from Thomas and Yates below (keep watching the GreenEDGE video for Durbo's superb definition of 'First Hill Syndrome' too).
