The race ended with a bunch sprint, won by the Australian Caleb Ewan, who outsprinted the Dutch Danny Van Poppel and the Belgian rider Timothy Dupont. Astana rider Hugo Houle was really close to the Top-10 of the race, finishing on 15th place. Luis Leon Sanchez was 19th.
- Today we had a different race and it suited more for the sprinters. Seven riders went away with a good advantage, but it was always controlled by the peloton. The wind has created some problems to the riders during the day and has provoked a few crashes. Fortunately, no one of our team was involved. So, in the final there was a sprint and since we did not have here a pure sprinted, it was impossible to get a strong result. Anyway, it was a good race for us and now we are looking forward to the Vuelta a Andalucia next week, - said sports director Bruno Cenghialta.
