Race report
Alexey Lutsenko attacks from the gun and Marc Soler, Jay Vine, Mark Padun, Thibaut Pinot, Davide Villella, Brandon McNulty, Robert Stannard, Élie Gesbert, Rein Taaramäe and Óscar Cabedo rejoin him. More riders make it across. Among them Alejandro Valverde, David de la Cruz, Bruno Armirail, Harry Sweeny and Rohan Dennis.

Vine is the first rider at Alto de la Colladona with Soler in second. The two push on together, while the main group brings back the chasers. Taaramäe goes again with Landa, Armirail, Hamilton, Lutsenko and Pedersen. The five rejoin the two leaders.

Pinot and Reichenbach strike in the peloton and Armirail waits for them to navigate his team mates back to the front of the race. Vine is the first rider over the Alto de la Mozqueta, Alto de Santo Emiliano, Puerto de Tenebredo and the climb to Perlavia to extend his GC lead.

The peloton trails approximately 4 minutes behind the lead group during the entire day.

Vine accelerates 6 kilometres before the summit and he drops his companions. He opens a 30 seconds gap and consolidates the lead. Meanwhile, Evenepoel, Roglic, Mas and Rodriguez drop their GC rivals. The young Spaniard hangs on for a while until he also loses contact.

Vine wins the stage ahead of Marc Soler, while Evenepoel finishes in fifth to stay in the overall race lead.
