Race report
Sabrina Stultiens, Femke Gerritse, Rotem Gafinovitz and Marit Raaijmakers establish the breakaway early on. The four carve out a lead of 3 minutes.

The four are brought back with 78 kilometres remaining. Nothing happens until Maike van der Duin sneaks away 55 kilometres later. Moments later a huge crash takes down Marta Cavalli. She continues the race, but will not reach the finish line.

After the first finish passage – with almost 20 kilometres to go – Marianne Vos, Elisa Balsamo, Elisa Longo Borghini, Katarzyna Niewiadoma and Silvia Persico rejoin Van der Duin. While the field is ripped apart by echelons, the leaders open up a gap of 40 seconds.

Balsamo drops back in the last kilometres before Vos outguns Persico and Niewiadoma on the uphill finish. The Dutch icon moves in the maillot jaune.
