He quickly picked up 20 seconds, and looked as motivated as ever to redeem himself as one of the strongest climbers in the race.Barguil tried to close the gap with Pantano close behind, but it was a case of too little too late as Van Garderen carried on at a powerful speed, picking up more time with each pedal stroke. He rounded the hairpin turns, under the rain and slick roads with a healthy lead, as his rivals behind scrambled to close the gap down.Under two kilometres to go, his lead swelled to 27 seconds, then 30 and 33 in what was clearly an unstoppable performance.Barguil tried to attack Pantano but both were surprised by the new addition to the chase group, Lopez, who had silently bridge across. The Colombian looked freshest of the three and he made his move for second place, leaving Barguil for third and Pantano in fourth.Barguil may have been disappointed to lose out on the stage win but, it was no consolation prize of course, that the Frenchman moved into the overall lead, 21 seconds ahead of Lopez and 24 seconds ahead of Andrew Talansky (Cannondale).Results : 1 Tejay Van Garderen (USA) BMC Racing Team 6:26:13 2 Miguel Angel Lopez (Col) Astana Pro Team 0:00:16 3 Warren Barguil (Fra) Team Giant-Alpecin 4 Jarlinson Pantano (Col) IAM Cycling 0:00:31 5 Andrew Talansky (USA) Cannondale Pro Cycling 0:00:33 6 Simon Spilak (Slo) Team Katusha 0:00:43 7 Rui Costa (Por) Lampre - Merida 0:00:49 8 Jon Izaguirre (Spa) Movistar Team 9 Víctor De La Parte (Spa) CCC Sprandi Polkowice 0:00:59 10 Jan Hirt (Cze) CCC Sprandi Polkowice General classification after stage 7 :1 Warren Barguil (Fra) Team Giant-Alpecin 29:09:53 2 Miguel Angel Lopez (Col) Astana Pro Team 0:00:21 3 Andrew Talansky (USA) Cannondale Pro Cycling 0:00:24 4 Jon Izaguirre (Spa) Movistar Team 0:00:55 5 Jarlinson Pantano (Col) IAM Cycling 0:01:06 6 Simon Spilak (Slo) Team Katusha 0:01:07 7 Tejay Van Garderen (USA) BMC Racing Team 0:01:31 8 Geraint Thomas (GBr) Team Sky 0:01:36 9 Wilco Kelderman (Ned) Team LottoNl-Jumbo 0:01:39 10 Rui Costa (Por) Lampre - Merida 0:01:55
