After More Points ToB17
Both Nicolas Roche (Sky) and Xandro Meurisse (Wanty Group Gobert) started the day equal on points in the King of the Mountain competition, but it was Meurisse who wore the black jersey of the KOM leader (due to count back). Roche was able to beat Meurisse to the summit of the Brickhouse climb moving him one point ahead on the road. The four break away riders had already claimed the first four positions at the summit. But that left Roche adding two points and Meurisse with one additional point.
