Well Froome started that stage in 4th place for GC and the fifth place Pinot Thibaut was already 1:02 behind Froome. Others behind Pinot rapidly getting further behind in overall time. Yates who was number one GC finished stage 19 in 79th place 38:51 back. POZZOVIVO started the stage 3rd in GC but finished 11th and 8:29 back. Dumoulin, who might have kept with Froome waited for Pinot that had broken a spoke. So Dumoulin finished 5th and 3:23 back.

Can't exactly claim doping when there is plenty of circumstance and strategy that came into play also during the last half of the stage.
