Today’s stage was a relatively uneventful one until the last 5 kilometers, where a large crash involving much of the peloton helped shape the final sprint into Sarzeau. In the end, it was a close match between Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) and Quick-Step Floors’ Fernando Gaviria. In the end, the young Colombian would edge out Sagan and Greipel for the second win of his auspicious Tour debut.

The peloton crash highlighted the importance of truly having teammates to have your back, as several teams, including Cannondale, worked hard to try and help Urán link back up with the lead group after the chaos of the crash. Their efforts allowed Urán to gain some time and hold his top-10 position in the GC.
