Paris Nice Final Stage: New Best Split Time

Unlike the opening Prologue of Paris Nice today's individual time trial was both uphill and provided split times so we could know how each rider was faring while they were on course.  Andrew Talansky (Cannondale Garmin) hasn't had the most brilliant of races in the 72nd edition of the Race to the Sun, but he was on form for the finale of the race.  When he came through the time check he posted the new best time there.  His ride continued to climb with him garnering new best time as he cross the line at the top of the Col d'Eze.  The question remains will it be enough to take the stage?
