The four fugitives, who escaped soon after the start, were caught by the majority in time as expected and the fight for the best possible positions for the final action in one of the most picturesque cities in the world began. Jakob Fuglsang did a great job for Astana’s Fabio Fellini. It seemed that the Frenchman Arnaud Demare (Groupama FDJ) would not be able to interfere in the stage victory, but it was with the help of Astana that he managed to break through and was by far the strongest in the sprint, where the road went slightly uphill. in the goal of at least two wheel length advantages.

The second was Michael Matthews and the third was Fabio Felline. Peter Sagan finished only in eighth place.

Matera, an Italian city forgotten by time

Amazing! The conclusion was extremely demanding. I lost quite a few seats, but came back after I stuck to Astana’s riders on the bike. 200 meters before the finish I started at full speed and it worked out. I can’t believe I won, “said Demare, who also won Tuesday’s stage, but then after the photo finish.

This is already his 12th victory of the season, with which he also wore the shirt of the best sprinter at this year’s Tour of Italy.

There are no changes in the total at the top. Joao Almeida (Deceuninck – QuickStep) defended his pink shirt. Friday is the turn of a stage that is easy on paper, but the weather forecast is very windy.
