He made them pay with an epic solo ride from 1 minute behind Aru at the foot of the Mortirolo to nearly 3 minutes ahead at the final. It's probably a good thing Porte has quit and saved himself the embarrassment that Aru has suffered.
Maybe Katusha and Astana remembered what Contador did to Andy Schleck in the Tour in 2010 when Andy had a mechanical wearing the Yellow Jersey and AC attacked.
