Yates snatched third to pick up a four-second bonus. Spaniard Mikel Landa, Movistar's team leader, was part of a quintet that finished 36 seconds behind the winners. 

Slovenian Roglic, who started the day seven seconds behind Carapaz, rode into a barrier taking a corner too wide as the contenders took terrifying risks on the final descent. 

He had to exchange bikes with a team mate and came in 51 seconds behind the winner in a trio that also contained Trek-Segafredo's Dutchman Bauke Mollema.

Roglic remains second overall, but is now 47 seconds behind Carapaz and a minute ahead of Nibali.
