Sebastian Schönberger is the first attacker on the slopes leading to Col de Plainpalais. King of the Mountain Pierre Rolland, Nils Politt, Gregor Mühlberger, Bruno Armirail, Michael Storer, Mikkel Honoré, George Bennett, Julien Bernard, Antwan Tolhoek, Jan Hirt, Franck Bonnamour and Eliot Lietaer follow his move.
While Politt, Mühlberger, Lietaer and Schönberger lose contact, Eddie Dunbar, Laurens De Plus, Antonio Tiberi, Kenny Elissonde, Simon Geschke, Alexis Vuillermoz and Matteo Fabbro replace them at the front.
Rolland extends his KOM lead at the summit. The peloton is still close behind at that point and Gorka Izagirre goes after the leaders on descent. He joins the lead group halfway up the Col de Leschaux. Once again, Rolland cements his polka dot lead at the top, which is enough to take home the jersey.
The lead group opens up a gap of more than 2 minutes. That’s all they get.
Only Storer, Elissonde, Bennett, Hirt, De Plus and Dunbar remaining on the Col de la Colombière. The six reach the summit 1.20 minutes ahead of the peloton, which is down to 1 minute when the six enter the finish climb.
Hirt goes solo with 10 kilometres remaining before Storer and Bennett regain contact after 2 kilometres. Meanwhile Gaudu, Geoghegan Hart and Caruso are struggling in the GC group.
The GC group – Roglic, Vingegaard, Kruijswijk, Chaves, O’Connor, Haig – take control with 6.4 kilometres to climb.
Vingegaard strikes 1 kilometre later with Roglic in his wheel. The others are dropped, although O’Connor keeps on fighting.
The Dane powers on with the Slovene in his wheel to keep the Aussie behind them. And they do. Vingegaard wins the stage, Roglic takes the GC.
