Race report
Julius van den Berg, Ander Okamika and Joan Bou attack from the gun. The three open a 3 minutes gap in no-time. And that’s it. That’s all they get.

The attackers are reeled in inside the last 10 kilometres.

Pascal Ackermann jumps early in the uphill sprint and Mads Pedersen follow him like a shadow to take the win with a huge lead.

Remco Evenepoel finishes safely in the peloton to stay in La Roja.
