Julian Alaphilippe, as expected
Hot favourite Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) took the highly expected stage win at Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne but it was a very tight finish with his breakaway companion Gregor Mühlberger (Bora-Hansgrohe) while the third man Alessandro De Marchi (CCC) finished a few meters behind. Adam Yates retained the overall lead.
