The final stage of the Circuit la Sarthe ended with the expected bunch sprint. There were also no surprises when it was Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) who crossed the line first ahead of Aleksei Tsatevich (Katusha) and Samuel Dumoulin (AG2R La Mondiale). The overall victory would go to Ramunas Navardauskas (Cannondale-Garmin) after he won the necessary bonus seconds to leap frog from 3rd to 1st. With the final stage not being all that selective, Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung had 2 goals for the day: Louis Meintjes would need to finish safely in the bunch to win the King of the Mountains jersey and Steve Cummings would.
