Race report
Gruzdev, Clarke and Cosnefroy form the breakaway and the trio races to a lead over the main group of more than 4 minutes. They are caught inside the last 3 kilometres.

A strong lead-out by Alexander Kristoff in the ensuing sprint doesn’t lead to another Fernando Gaviria win because Sam Bennett pips the Colombian for first place. Primoz Roglic finishes safely in the bunch to seal the overall victory.
