Race report
Van Aert attacks from the gun. Pogacar goes with him and Vingegaard bridges across.

Of course, it’s just for fun. The peloton peddels back to their wheel.

Bissegger and De Wulf initiate the breakaway on the Champs-Élysées circuit. Tratnik, Burgaudeau, Martínez and Jorgenson track them down before they are caught with 32 kilometes to go.

Doull, Rutsch and Schachmann are next. Duchesne en Le Gac rejoin them. They reach a maximum gap of 20 seconds, while Doull loses contact inside the last 20 kilometres. Le Gac drops back 13 kilometres before the line. The remaining three enter the last 10 kilometres with a lead of 7 seconds.

The catch is made just before the bell for the last round sounds.

Jasper Philipsen powers to a commanding victory in the ensuing bunch sprint, while Jonas Vingegaard finishes together with his team mate to celebrate the GC win.
