Race report
Cees Bol and Edward Theuns open up a gap after 4 kilometres. Stefan Küng is the first rider to bridge across. Cees Bol sits up after 20 kilometres.

BORA-hansgrohe speeds up on the Côte de l’Estiade to put pressure on Sam Bennett. The man in green drops back, offering Peter Sagan the chance to collect 5 more points than Bennett in the intermediate sprint up the road.

The Theuns/Küng combo reaches the maximum lead of more than 5 minutes on the Col du Béal. Gradually the gap falls to 3 minutes and the Swiss rider heads out alone. Bennett is dropped from the peloton on the lower slopes.

The Sagan squad forges on in the peloton and CCC (Trentin, Van Avermaet) comes to their assistance on the Côte du Courreau. The group Bennett reaches the crest with a delay of almost 2 minutes.

The chasers catch the lone attacker with 80 kilometres remaining. A little later the Bennett group stops their efforts.

Benoot heads out alone on the Côte de la Duchère. Madouas goes after the former winner of the Strade Bianche.

The attackers are brought back before the last climb and Kämna gives it a go. De Gendt tries to bridge across and Alaphilippe also jumps clear.

When it all comes together, Hirschi attacks with Sagan and Van Avermaet on his wheel before Dumoulin closes the gap.

Kragh Andersen is next. This is the right attack and the Dane powers on to open up a good gap. He wins the race ahead of Mezgec, while Sagan crosses the line in fourth.

Roglic stays in the GC lead.
