Race report
Wout van Aert, Nils Politt and Mikkel Honoré jump off the front after 5 kilometres. The trio opens a gap of 2 minutes before several riders decide that they want to join the breakaway. To no avail.

The lead of the trio is still hovering around 2 minutes after 40 kilometres, which inspires Van Aert to sit up and wait for the bunch. The other two extend their lead to 3 minutes. That’s all they get.

The duo is caught on the Côte de Cammazes. Most sprinters lose contact on the climb, while Alexis Gougeard and Benjamin Thomas reach the summit together. The Frenchmen forge on to open a 30 seconds gap.

The group Groenewegen rejoins the main group with 28 kilometres remaining.

Thomas is the last man standing in the last kilometre before Jasper Philipsen sprints to victory.

The GC remains unchanged. So Vingegaard stays in yellow.
