Race report
Alexey Lutsenko and Alessandro De Marchi jump off the front at kilometre 5. Jarrad Drizners, James Shaw, Ander Okamika and Joan Bou track them down after 13 kilometres and the six open a lead of 3 minutes.

Lutsenko, Shaw and De Marchi are the last attackers to be reeled in with 32 kilometres to go.

Primoz Roglic gains a time bonus of 3 seconds on the last classified climb, which is a prelude to his dominant performance in the steep last 800 metres. He dominates the climb from the base to the line and wins ahead of Mads Pedersen and Enric Mas to move into the overall race lead.
