Today’s break featured Tjallingii, Dockx, Godoy, Rubiano and Cecchinel and was reeled in with just 7 kilometres remaining. The sprinters teams then took over fighting for position with Viviani well placed as well as Sky’s Ben Swift.
Kittel’s teammates had lost each other and the German sprinter looked isolated and too far back but he tore through the field in the last 100metres to take his 2nd stage win in a row.
