 Should be updating the results, but I forget. :fp

The peloton had a 218.5km route to tackle from Saint-Germain-au-Mont-d-Or to Saint-Christo-en-Jarez where the riders would take on seven categorised climbs along the way.
There was a five-man break that went up the road in the shape of Quinten Hermans  #cwg, Tom-Jelte Slagter  #bbhotels Michael Schär  #ccc , Niccolò Bonifazio  #total and Brent Van Moer  #lotto.
However, a crash took out three of the break, Hermans, Bonifazio and Van Moer, who all abandoned due to their injuries. Jan Hirt was also forced out of the race.

Schär was eventually left to battle on solo.
This meant that he took enough points to wear the #kom jersey.

The first big name to attack was Rigoberto Urán  #ef with 3km to go, he was immediately chased down by Primož Roglič along with a few other favourites, but it was brought back straight away by the bunch.
It was then when  #jumbo took it up with Tom Dumoulin leading Van Aert and Roglič with the rest of the peloton in tow.
It was Van Aert who launched first with about 150 metres left, Impey had to come from a long way back and closed fast, but ran out of road.
