It was a slightly uphill drag of a finish at the end of the 198.5km stage between Mo I Rana and Sandnessjoen, but Degenkolb, who specialises in these finishes, lost out by a tight margin for the second successive day. LottoNL-Jumbo’s Moreno Hofland was third ahead of a fading Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) and Arnaud Démare (FDJ), with stage 1 winner Alexander Kristoff well back.
