The 18-kilometer stage featured several turns over cobbled streets on a very windy and technical 5km course. Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) took the win when he finished five seconds faster than Tony Martin (Etixx – Quick-Step). Team Novo Nordisk’s best-placed rider was Spanish rider Javier Megias who finished 2:47 behind Valverde.
