Wisniowski put in a strong final effort to sprint after Chris Lawless was forced to pull up after dropping a chain in the bunch kick. Lawless had been on the wheel of Caleb Ewan (Mitchelton-Scott) coming out of the final corner.

In the end it was Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) who prevailed in the sprint, claiming victory in the showpiece criterium for a second year in a row.
