Top British finisher was Steve Cummings (MTN-Qhubeka), who put in a solid ride to finish in 10th place and 32 seconds behind Dennis. Cummings’s MTN-Qhubeka team will be pleased with that result on their Tour de France debut.

British national champion Alex Dowsett (Movistar) finished the stage in 13th position, saying that he fell short of his expectations: “Disappointed, but not surprising,” he said. “It was really hard, 56kph into headwinds. A level short for me. I struggled a bit.”
