Movistar duo Alejandro Valverde and Mikel Landa launched late bids for victory, but had to settle for second and third, 10 and 14 seconds down. Bernal and Thomas rolled in three seconds after Landa, while Steven Kruijswijk Jumbo-Visma moved up into third overall after former race leader Julian Alaphilippe Deceuninck-QuickStep was dropped 13km from the finish of the micro-stage.
