Attacks are coming thick and fast from the gun, but the peloton is grouped when it reaches today’s first KOM climb at km 20. After the crest Ian Stannard opens up a gap and Nils Politt is the first rider to bridge across. Mark McNally, Giovanni Carboni and Alex Paton hook on later. The five put more than 8 minutes into the main group before Quick-Step leader Julian Alaphilippe wakes up. Carboni was just over 8 minutes down on GC at the start of the day.
Paton moves into the sprint jersey before he stops his efforts to wait for the peloton.
The gap sits at 4 minutes with 22 kms out when Stannard accelerates. Politt jumps to his wheel and the front group is down to two. Still too crowded as far as Stannard is concerned and the Brit drops the German with 17 kms out. Politt doesn’t give in, but after an inspired chase he cracks with 6 kms remaining.
Stannard solos to victory, while Julian Alaphilippe retains the GC lead.
