Bernard, Rutsch, Clarke, Zimmermann and Bonnamour jump off the front after 5 kilometres before Mohoric comes across. The six open up a gap of more than 4 minutes.
After the intermediate sprint several riders try to escape the clutches of the peloton. Edward Theuns and Nils Politt are the first to succeed before Jasper Stuyven, Alejandro Valverde, Michael Valgren, Mike Teunissen, Davide Ballerini, Iván García, Christophe Laporte, Sylvan Dillier, Greg Van Avermaet, Élie Gesbert, Casper Pedersen, Brent Van Moer, Omar Fraile, Dmitriy Gruzdev, Ion Izagirre, Max Walscheid and Anthony Turgis track them down.
The peloton keeps chasing and Valverde, García, Fraile, Gruzdev and Van Avermaet stop their efforts before the others catch the original lead group with 100 kilometres remaining. At that moment the peloton chases at 30 seconds, but the gap widens to 11 minutes with 50 kilometres remaining.
Mohoric strikes with 24 kilometres remaining and he opens up a 1 minute gap. Which is enough to hold off the chasers and forge on to his second Tour de France stage victory.
The peloton comes home almost 21 minutes after the stage winner.
