Race report
Daniel Oss initiates the break of the day with Mirco Maestri hooking up. The two race to a maximum lead at 4 minutes, but of course they don’t stand a chancce and they are reeled in in time.

Lotto Soudal controls the race from then on and André Greipel puts all that hard work to good use by winning the bunch sprint.
