Race report
While the peloton reaches the summit together, Alaphilippe cements his KOM lead on the first climb. Effectively, the route continues to climb on the Côte de Rond and twelve riders forge clear: Dylan van Baarle, Jack Haig, Julian Alaphilippe, Felix Grossschartner, Carlos Verona, Sébastien Reichenbach, Sepp Kuss, Julien Bernard, Carl Fredrik Hagen, Hermann Pernsteiner, Alessandro De Marchi and Warren Barguil. Once again, Alaphilippe is the first rider at the top, which he repeats at the Montée des Gets, although he is already the winner of the KOM competition.

After Gets Nils Politt tracks down the lead group and the thirteen crest the Corbier and Pas de Morgins almost 4 minutes ahead of the peloton. Adam Yates calls it a race on the Morgins. The runner-up on GC has a fever. Steven Kruijswijk abandons, too.

On the Côte des Rives the peloton is almost 2 minutes down on the lead group when Van Baarle, Haig, Kuss and Hagen go on the attack. Haig speeds up and pushes on alone before Van Baarle rejoins him.

Haig and Van Baarle crest the Côte des Rives 26 seconds ahead of Alaphilippe and Hagen. The duo extend their lead on the uphill at shallow gradients that runs to the line. The Dutchman opens the sprint with 250 metres out to win the race with a clear margin.

Fuglsang finishes in the peloton to seal the overall victory. Tejay van Garderen and Emanuel Buchmann join him on the podium.
