Damiano Caruso (BMC) moved back into the lead after Geraint Thomas (Sky) sustained a mechanical in the finale. He now has an advantage of one second over Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky) with Wilko Kelderman (Sunweb) third at 11 seconds.

"I realized that Sky outnumbered us in the front group so I decided to wait a little bit," Landa said. "When Lopez attacked it was a bit far from the finish line.

"I let other riders do the work and wait for the right time to go for a final attack. I'm on a new team. I'm in a good shape. This makes it a good start for the 2018 season.”
