At 10km, a compact bunch of Team INEOS, Team Sunweb, Alpecin-Fenix and Deceuninck-Quick-Step were in contention for the win.

As the finishing line drew ever closer there was no rider willing or able pull out by themselves.

Dutchman Jakobsen was able to sprint out from the pack to take the win, with Cofidis' Elia Viviana in second and third place went to CCC Team's Matteo Trentin.
