Photo Finish G17-50
Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) finally had the luck to get an open sprint to the line. And with that he was able to pay back the efforts and faith of his teammates, just barely. The race came down to inches needing a photo finish to decide the placings on the line. It was Ewan for the stage by the width of a third of his front wheel. Much harder to tell was who managed second and third. It was decided by the officials that second place went to the Maglia Ciclamino of Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep) and third went to Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe). Finishing out the top five was Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) and Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo).
