It takes 15 kilometres for Bernard, Skujins, Sessler, Hernandez and Rojas five riders to open up a gap. King, Armiral and Bravo bridges across to make it eight at the front and they race to a lead of 4 minutes before the peloton brings it back to less than 3 minutes.
A crash with 6 kilometres remaining takes down Alaphilippe, Thomas, Martínez, Kwiatkowski and Mas. A little later the last escapees, Skujins, Rojas, King and Armiral, are reeled in.
Lutsenko and Ulissi opens the uphill sprint to the Santuary, but have no answer when Schachmann overhauls them with a powerful sprint to add to his overall lead.
As a result of the crash numbers two and three, Alaphilippe and Kwiatkowski, fall down on GC, while fourth placed Martínez also loses time, although he is still in contention. Ion Izagirre now sits in second at 33 seconds with Schachmann’s team-mate Patrick Konrad in third on the same time.
