Race report
The first attacks are neutralised before Johan Jacobs gives it a go after almost 10 kilometres. Valentin Madouas, Victor Koretzky, Yevgeniy Fedorov and Julius van den Berg set off in pursuit and they join the Movistar rider, while Sébastien Grignard bridges across on the first climb of the day, the Col de Murs.

While the six open a gap of 5 minutes, Madouas cements his KOM lead at the Murs climb. The Frechman is also the first rider at the Col de Sambuc, Col des Portes and Col de Pas de la Couelle.

The gap falls below 1 minute on the Col de l’Espigoulier and Jacobs goes solo. Koretzky joins him, while terwijl Matthew Holmes bridges across from the peloton to reach the summit in first position.

Moments later the peloton reels in the attackers before Søren Kragh Andersen jumps clear. But to no avail.

Mathieu Burgaudeau wins the intermediate sprint and pushes on in the last 8 kilometres. The Frenchman opens a lead of 20 seconds over the peloton with 3.5 kilometres to go.

The peloton – Trek-Segafredo/Jumbo-Visma – gives chase, but it’s too little too late. Burgaudeau holds off the sprinters and claims the first victory of his professional career with the dramatic margin of two metres.

Leader Roglic finishes safely in the peloton to stay in the yellow jersey.
