This was the longest stage. After a few hills at the beginning, it was flat, and the peleton rolled at a pedestrian pace until last mile with an exciting 46 mph sprint finish and a new stage winner by only a few centimeters. There was no change to the overall standings. A few crashes occurred, reportedly, when riders were caught napping. If you are fascinated by how much the riders eat, it is still not an exact science since the Sunweb team reported they are measuring and counting every calorie the team consumes to gather data for a nutrition study.
