Together with 13 contenders he launched an early attack and carved out a strong advantage of 7 minutes after the first ascent. Even though GC leaders chased the breakaway group, Evgeny didn’t give up and launched another attack leaving strong climbers behind. He kept fighting till the end and finished on the 6th position.
