Race report
Delaplace and Cosnefroy establish the breakaway after the intermediate sprint. The two open up a 1 minute lead before they are reeled in with 25 kilometres to go.

The finale on the racing track is marred by several crashes. But the sterling duo Jasper Philipsen/Mathieu van der Poel are focused and deliver once again. The star lead-out launches his sprint leader and Philipsen holds off Ewan by a wheel.

Adam Yates stays in yellow in the last stage before the Pyrenees.
