Nairo Quintana tightens his grip on the Giro d'Italia by winning the gruelling mountain time trial from Bassano de Grappa to Cima Grappa.
The Movistar rider consolidated his overall lead two days before the race finishes as he crossed the line 17 seconds ahead of Italy's Fabio Aru in Friday's 26.8k 19th stage.
Quintana extended his lead over fellow Colombian Rigoberto Uran to over three minutes with just two stages remaining.
