As expected, today's stage ended up in a sprint finish. And a pretty close one it was:

for the 3rd time in 4 days, the breakaway only consisted of riders from the PCT teams, with #gazprom Kuriyanov and #novonordisk Planet being part of it for the 4th time.

With 52 points, all scored in intermediate sprints, the Russian now not only holds the intermediate sprint jersey, but also has established a healthy lead in the regular #green points classification, ahead of #novonordisk Planet (43pt) and #quickstep Viviani (36pt). It's not that too many people will take note of it, but winning a points jersey in a WT race surely is not a bad achievement for a rider whose only 1st place in his career so far came from taking the youth classification in the Ain'Ternational-Rhône Alpes-Valromey Tour in 2013.

Tomorrow there's another climb to conquer for the peloton. And it's a new one:

Fairly long, but pretty steady.
