A wheel length behind was his teammate Jon Mould and third, the overall leader Peter Williams of Team IG Sigma Sport. The race began fast,an average speed of 50kph and after about 60km, two riders clipped off, Emil Andersson and Johan Shore. The opened up a gap of about 3 minute and the effort to stay clear saw one of the riders drop away and caught by the pleoton led by IG Sigma Sport before the final escapee was caught just 3k from the finish.

In the 50 or so up sprint finish, UK Youth had the legs to finish 1-2 and afterwards Bialoblocki said “It was a beautiful and nice stage without any tough climbs. Unfortunately, I lost two teammates in the hills. I enjoyed the day but anything can happen tomorrow”.
