Race report
Neilson Powless attacks from the gun. Laurent Pichon rejoins the KOM leader and the two open up a lead of more than 3 minutes.

Powless cements his KOM lead on the Côte de Trabakua and Côte de Milloi, while Victor Lafay jumps clear in the peloton before the intermediate sprint to collect points for his green jersey.

The green jersey falls back into the peloton before Powless continues with picking up KOM points on the Côte d’Itziar and the last climb of the day, the Côte d’Orioko Benta. He stops his efforts in San Sebastián and Vichon plows on alone until he is caught with 38 kilometres to go.

In the ensuing sprint it is Jasper Philipsen who rounds out a strong lead-out by Mathieu van der Poel, while Phil Bauhaus and Caleb Ewan finish in second and third.
