Rutsch is the first to accelerate on the Paris circuit, but his team mate Bissegger is the first to open up a gap. Sweeny and Pedersen (Casper) go with him. Konrad comes across before Pedersen drops back.
The three open up a maximum gap of 30 seconds before they are brought back with 32 kilometres to go.
A counter attack by Schelling, Gilbert and Alaphilippe is neutralised before Schelling goes again. Van Moer and Valgren join him. These three also open up a 30 seconds gap, while they are brought back in the last lap.
