Straight from the gun Simone Andreetta, Davide Ballerini, Raffaello Bonusi, Ben Gastauer, Joonas Henttala, Alan Marangoni and Mirco Maestri open up a gap, while Pavel Kochetkov re-joins them. They race to a lead of more than 3 minutes before the peloton takes control. The break is on a leash for a while – with a gap lingering between 2 to 3 minutes -, but then the pack is forced to stop at a level crossing and the break away’s lead increases to over 5 minutes.
However, after a brief neutralization the time gap before the level crossing is reinstated.
At the top of the last climb Gastauer and Ballerini are the last men standing, while Felline, Cattaneo and Terpstra bridge over. They dig deep, but Sagan chases them down with the peloton on his wheel.
In the ensuing sprint Gaviria holds off a fast charging Sagan to take his first WorldTour victory in 2017.
