At km 6 Tosh Van der Sande, Baptiste Planckaert, Pier-André Coté and Tyler Williams open the road. The four race to a maximum lead of almost 10 minutes. With 67 kms remaining Coté gets dropped, while Williams takes a wrong turn at km 33 and he can’t reconnect.
When the gap has fallen below 1 minute in the penultimate lap Van der Sande stops his efforts and Planckaert is reeled in with 16 kms to go.
Sean De Bie opens a gap just before the last passage on the line, but he is chased down by the head of the peloton. A counter-attack by Elissonde is neutralized, too.
With 3.4 kms to go the road is kicking up when Kreuziger opens up a small gap, yet he is brought back.
Uran goes in the last km. In 2015 he powered to glory in this fashion, but not this time. The race comes down to a sprint with Peter Sagan besting Greg Van Avermaet and Michael Matthews.
