Per Strand Hagenes (Jumbo-Visma) outsprinted Romain Grégoire (Groupama - FDJ) to win stage 5 of the 4 Jours de Dunkerque in Cassel. Gregoire takes over the leader's jersey on the Queen Stage, with a 13-second lead on Kasper Asgreen (Soudal-QuickStep). Alexis Rénard (Cofidis) crossed the line five seconds back for third place.

"We had a plan before the race. In the final, I could follow attacks and mark the moves. If I had legs, I marked the move and I think Gregoire went as hard as possible to get as much time as possible on GC, and then for me, it was just for me to sit and wait," said Hagenes.
