Frenchmen Antoine Gibert from RVC85 and Florian Rapiteau from CD Loire Atlantique was the first attackersof the day. They managed to get over a minute gap but after the Côte du Fuiteau (500m long, avg 13%) they were joined by several counter attackers.

With 70km to go they had over a minute on a peleton. Behind them, ten riders attacked from the peleton and managed to join the front group. After that, we had a group of 22 leaders with over a two minute on peleton. But the big group didn't let them go and the gap was slowly coming down. With 30 kilometers to go the leaders had just 15 seconds over counter attack of 17 riders and 1:10 over the peleton.

After the second pass of the finish line the counter attack managed to bridge to the leaders. 39 riders had a gap of one minute over the peleton. Mathieu Legrand and Daniel Rodriguez Davila managed to breakaway from the leading group and with 13km to go they had a 30 seconds gap over the chasers. They were brought back with just 6kms to go. Soon after that Tanguy Turgis put the crucial move and managed to get away solo. He quickly gained 30 second and finished solo in La Tardière.
