Race report
Quinten Hermans and Simon Clarke attack from the gun. The peloton pace remains high, and Alessandro De Marchi bridges across after 20 kilometres of frantic action.

The peloton keeps chasing, and Hermans is dropped from the lead group just before the intermediate sprint – at kilometre 52.1

Eventually a huge group, featuring the likes of Valentin Paret-Peintre, Esteban Chaves, Andrea Bagioli, Juan Pedro López, Romain Bardet, Jan Tratnik, Domenico Pozzovivo, Damiano Caruso, Aurélien Paret-Peintre, Filippo Fiorelli, Marco Frigo, and Filippo Zana – manage to distance the peloton. They rejoin the two leaders on the Campasauro climb.

After intergiro sprint, with roughly 38 kilometres to go, Tratnik attacks from the lead group. Frigo, Bagioli, Bardet, and Valentin Paret-Peintre go after him.

Tratnik enters the finish climb 35 seconds ahead of the first chasers. The second group trails at 1.15 minutes and the peloton is over 5 minutes in arrears.

The lone attacker extends his lead to over 1 minute on the climb. But when Paret-Peintre and Bardet speed up and drop Frigo and Bagioli, the gap falls again. The two Frenchmen pass the banner for the last 5 kilometres 39 seconds after the Slovene.

Paret-Peintre drops Bardet with 3 kilometres to go, and he gobbles up Tratnik just 300 metres later. The Frenchman pushes on to take his first stage win in a grand Tour.

The GC riders cross the line 3.14 minutes later, and Tadej Pogacar retains the maglia rosa.
