The Race: Nacer Bouhanni notched his first win since the Giro d'Italia where he won the points classification. It was the FDJ rider's ninth victory this season. He came off the wheel of Jens Debusschere to easily take the stage.

Near the finish, a touch of wheels caused 2013 Eneco Tour winner Zdenek Stybar to do a horrible faceplant. He was ambulanced off with a neck brace.

Race leader Lars Boom finished 26th at the same time as Bouhanni to preserve his overall lead.

Tomorrow will be a hard stage with lots of climbing, including ascents of the Bosberg and Grammont.
