Because the judges back counted their positions in the previous stages. Gerrans had a lower cumulative position count than Valverde and hence the ochre jersey.
It was a very exciting stage.
Is that what happens at other tours? Phil and Paul were expecting Valverde to be in ochre having won the stage. Seems a bit dodgy to me.
