Merlier, Mathieu van der Poel’s teammate at Alpecin-Fenix, remained upright. The Belgian Jasper Philipsen of the same team came in second.

The yellow jersey remained in the hands of Van der Poel. Primoz Roglic, the Slovenian leader of Jumbo-Visma, among others, lost time due to a fall. His team had already lost Robert Gesink after a fall earlier in the stage.

Another stage that seems suitable for the sprinters will follow on Tuesday. Between Redon and Fougères, the riders will not encounter any significant slope.
