With moves and counter moves being pulled back into the peloton and multiple riders now with a better chance of pulling off the surprise victory, everyone thought they would play their cards for themselves and for their respective teams. Romain Kreuziger (Tinkoff Saxo) went on the attack first, but his move was quickly covered by Giampaolo Caruso (Katusha) as the pair climbed the Cote de La Roche-aux-Faucons. Thousands turned out to watch their heroes climb, to drink beer and munch on the famous Frites.
