The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal conquested a second stage win.
The break of the day consisted of six riders. The sprint teams, with Jens Keukeleire contributing for Lotto Soudal, didn’t give the escapees more than two minutes advantage. Still, it lasted until three and a half kilometres from the finish line for all breakaway riders to be caught.
Jasper De Buyst brought André Greipel in a perfect position into the last hectometres and just like in the first stage the German, atop on his Ridley fully equipped Campagnolo, sprinted to victory. Sacha Modolo got second, ahead of Patrick Bevin.
