"I wasn't losing so much time and I was really trying to hold my position, but then in the final 10k I really died a thousand deaths".

"Victor on Monte Zoncolan ahead of Yates last week, four-time Tour de France victor Froome trails his compatriot by 3'50" with Pinot now 4'19" off the pace.

Dennis, 27, finished 14 seconds ahead of Germany's Tony Martin of Katusha-Alpecin with Dumoulin of Team Sunweb third 22 seconds off the pace.

Four-time Tour de France victor Chris Froome also had a good day in the saddle, moving up to fourth overall after finishing fifth, 35 seconds behind the Australian.

Dutchman Dumoulin, the world time trial champion, took 75 seconds out of Yates, but had started the day 2m 11s down in second place. I feel better every day. "To win here and jump back in the top 10 is a big day for me".

Froome arrived at the Giro bidding to become the third person to win three Grand Tours in a row but he crashed in training before the opening time trial, lost time in a split on stage four and injured himself again in a second crash four days later. I thought I would lose a lot more. But also today was a big target for me.

Yates kept his lead of 56 seconds overall lead on Dumoulin.

"I wasn't good, I had no power".

"I'm very happy even if I have to be careful in the stages to come", he added of the race which finishes in Rome in five days. "Simon has been untouchable so far, so it will be interesting to see how he goes after the time-trial and he goes in this last block, but I can't see anyone taking that jersey off his shoulders", said the 33-year-old.
