Race report
The break of the day features five riders. Taco van der Hoorn, Mikkel Honoré, Matej Mohoric, Nils Politt and Quinn Simmons put 1.30 minutes into the peloton. That’s all they get.

The attackers are almost caught after 60 kilometres. Politt stops his efforts before the other four regain a 1 minute lead.

Simmons and Mohoric head out together on the climb in Lauzerte. The American leaves the Slovene alone before he is reeled in just after the Côte Saint-Daunès.

Then Alexis Gougeard gives it a go. Fred Wright and Jasper Stuyven track him down. The three open a 30 seconds gap.

The leaders enter the last 10 kilometres 10 seconds ahead of the peloton. The gap remains the samen until Laporte bridges across to the three inside the last 1.5 kilometres.

The Frenchman opens the sprint with 500 metres out and he holds off the sprinters in the peloton.

Vingegaard finishes after a split in the peloton. Pogacar wins 5 seconds, but the Dane stays in the overall race lead.
