Alexander Kristoff (Team Katusha) won his third stage of the six-day race while Van Avermaet finished ninth and slipped from fourth to fifth overall. Niki Terpstra (Etixx-Quick Step) held onto the overall lead by six seconds ahead of Maciej Bodnar (Tinkoff-Saxo). Van Avermaet is 19 seconds behind with a day of the race to go.

BMC Racing Team's Ben Hermans attacked to ignite a five-man breakaway after 65 km of racing. But after gaining a maximum lead of three minutes, the group was brought back with 15 km to go.
