They were in the company of four other people: Niklas Eg (Make – Segafredo), Fabien Doubey (Wanty – Gobert Cycling Team), Magnus Cort (Astana Pro Team), and Casper Pedersen (Team Sunweb).
Vermote, as the first to be unloaded
They had survived the first climb of the day, there is the Puy Mary (1st grade), with the ease of use. Subsequently, it would be a slope of a fourth, a third and two from the second category to follow. Really, a lot of a period of grace were given to the six leaders, they never are. With still 50 kilometers to go, the gap was barely two minutes long. For Vermote went on, however, it is too soon, and with 44 km to go, had to get the Kortrijkzaan solve the problem.

Eg, Pedersen and Doubey, were one by one swallowed up by the impending end of it. The Roquenatou, all eyes focused on the rope, Julian Alaphilippe, but that didn’t happen. Instead, it was the attack of a young Belgian: Bjorg Lambert.
The 22-year-old Lambert, originally from the Eastern part of Flanders, Knesselare, was at the same time Naesen and a Cort date. Together to sum up the long slope in the direction of Jussac on this, but the pack was a trio on the trail: ten miles from the finish, the difference is barely a half a minute.
Little by little, came in with the peloton, getting closer, but the distance from the finish line, the gap still 23 seconds. Lambert, Naesen, and Cort remained to be brave go ahead, but the peloton to stay ahead of it appeared not to be possible. After the passage of the red rag was in the story.
