Yohann Offredo (FDJ) who has been off the front and the back, dropped back to his team car for a little advice. He needed to know if the gap to the three men off the front was possible to bridge. Whether or not his director sportif actually believed it, he must have told Offredo that he could make the catch. It was just a few minutes later that the French rider made a valiant albeit unsuccessful attempt to catch the escapees. Once Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) crashed and his team dropped the chase, it was all over for the peloton.
