Shortly after the start Dunne, Sun, Carpenter, McNulty, Williams and Bevilacqua get clear to race to a lead of almost 7 minutes. Then the peloton takes control to bring the gap down to 4 minutes. There the lead stabilizes.
On a climb with 12 kms out, 19-year old Brandon McNulty is the last man standing in the breakaway, 1’30” ahead of the peloton. On GC, he is just 13 seconds down on race leader Elia Viviani. Are we up for a surprise?
McNulty is still 33 seconds ahead of the peloton when he enters the final km. He grinds his way up, but when the gradients go up to 17% in the last metres he wanes. The sprinting peloton gobbles him up and Sonny Colbrelli is fastest, winning the race ahead of Magnus Cort and Timo Roosen.
Elia Viviani finishes with the main field and retains his lead, yet Mark Cavendish loses time and drops out of contention. Cort now sits in second, 2 seconds behind Viviani with Colbrelli 2 seconds further down.
