Thibaut Pinot (FDJ-BigMat) won the stage solo, as the large breakaway splintered in the final 40km into groups of one and two riders. Romain Bardet (Ag2R-La Mondiale) was 2nd (+43") and Pierre Rolland (Europcar) was 3rd (+1'50").

Andrew Talanskey (Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda) won the overall. Sergio Pardilla (Movistar) finished 2nd, and Daniel Navarro (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank) 3rd.
