Egan Bernal and his team put in a superb ride over the gravel roads in Tuscany to extend his lead in the overall standings. The day's early breakaway held on for the stage with Mauro Schmid (Qhubeka-Assos) taking the win.

Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) had his team on the front all day but it was Filippo Ganna who hit the front with Bernal on his wheel as they hit the gravel sectors, immediately putting riders like Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) in difficulty.
