• Lotto NL-Jumbo man beats Fernando Gaviria and Peter Sagan
• Greg Van Avermaet retains yellow jersey for BMC
The 2018 Tour de France turned east with a soporific stage, so lacking in action that it would have been welcomed by insomniacs. The 231km trawl, the longest of the race, through the Mayenne and Sarthe to Chartres, was enlivened only by the peloton speeding into the cathedral city for an inevitable sprint finish, won by the Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen (Lotto NL-Jumbo) from Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step) and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe). Greg Van Avermaet remains in the yellow jersey.
