With 65 kms left Van der Sande opens the chace in the company of Meersman, Bonifazio and Thurau mee. They are brought back with 30 kms left by a peloton that’s down to 30 riders. Gilbert is not one of them, while Dumoulin punctures a little later. Title defender Kwiatkowski can’t follow the pace either.
