With all Team DSM riders in the bunch, focus switched on conserving as much energy as possible for the finale. With the stage ticking by, the gap slowly feel after some strong riding by Leah Kirchmann and heading into the last 15 kilometres it was only 30 seconds. As a result, a flurry of attacks started all over again in the peloton and some more riders bridged across to the front of the race. Yet, after a hard chase things were all together heading into three kilometres to go, setting up a fast finale on the wet and twisting roads. Pfeiffer Georgi led the team home with a strong sixth place finish in the sprint, a result echoed in the overall standings where she also claimed the best young riders jersey after a hard week of racing.
