Fenn was caught inside 10km to go as the sprinters’ teams lined themselves up. A crash in the middle of the bunch derailed the chances of a few riders. Dylan Groenewegen hit out first on the right of the road, but it looked like Kittel would overhaul him, until he dropped his chain. Leaving Groenewegen to hang on for his first win of 2018, just beating Magnus Cort of Astana.
