Race report
Jacob Scott, Finn Crockett and Abram Stockman jumo off the front at kilometre 3. Callum Ormiston makes it four at the front. The lead of the quartet never exceeds 1 minute.

Crockett and Stockman are the last attackers to be reeled in with 13 kilometres remaining.

Tobias Lund Andresen goes down inside the last 2 kilometres, which hinders the sprint of some contenders. But Jumbo-Visma are ahead of the crash and take advantage.
