It was Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) spreading his arms wide in celebration in downtown Nimes. Ewan said he had extra motivation because his brand new daughter and his wife were watching from the stands. It was enough to get him to the line ahead of Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick Step), taking fourth was Peter Sagan (Bora Hansgrohe). Sagan might of loss a couple of sprinter's points to Viviani but he may have now reached an insurmountable lead in the competition for the Maillot Vert. In frame, but finishing tenth, was Andre Pasqualon (Wanty Gobert). Now it is on to the rough days in the Alps before Paris.
