Alejandro Valverde's attack did not arrive in time to reach Bauke Mollema. The Dutchman's attack had been powerful, he took distance and lost sight of the group that was traveling behind. They were illustrious persecutors: Alejandro, Roglic, Egan Bernal, Woods and Fuglsang. But Mollema's legs were stronger and he managed to impose himself on Como's goal.
Only the Dutchman arrived, with no one to stick to his back. Valverde's attack in the last descent found no prize. He failed to reduce Mollema's advantage too much, who raised his arms alone at the finish line. Alejandro prevailed in the sprint of the persecutors to be second.
