Dispite all of the drama and crashing going on behind, there was still a sprint for the stage victory in Morro Bay to be contested. It was looking like Peter Sagan (Bora Hansgrohe) was perfectly position to get his second stage of this year's Tour. However, Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quickstep) was able to get around Sagan and Jasper Philipsen (UAE Team Emirates) to take the third straight win for his team. Sagan's third place was enough for him to take over the Green Jersey of points leader. Coming in fourth was the French sprinter Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis). Due to the commissare decisions the drama behind had no effect on the overall standings on the general classification.
