Davide Gabburo goes solo with 16 kilometres to go. He tackles Hardens Hill with a 25 seconds lead. Porte brings the peloton back on the climb.

Dylan Teuns counters a Nils Politt attack just after the summit, but the attackers are brought back and the race comes down to a sprint finish. Cees Bol and Jake Stewart go head to head, while the Dutchman takes the spoils in a photo finish.
