The main climb of the day only thinned out the peloton by a very small amount. A much bigger selection came on the descent followed by the unclassified kicker. It was Avila himself who attacked going over the KoM followed by Janssens again (a PCT outfit needs to have a look at him).

There was a bit of a regroupement (~45 riders) on the following flatter section with some more attacks, but it wasn't until ~37km to go that the final winnowing happened. Zaccanti and Avila made the initial move and were then joined by the other 11 riders who contested the sprint finale.

It was Arashiro who was bashing his front wheel today.



Only three riders from yesterday's successful break made the front group today. Clarke is leading obviously, but Arashiro is quicker and could pick up bonifications while Jimmy looks the strongest on the climbs.
