During the second lap, Nino Schurter advanced and managed to lead the race with some advantage, but soon the group got back together.

It was on lap 6 when Avancini accelerated and took Schurter and Van der Poel with him, the three of them managed to open a hole, but a large group, headed by Sarrou, followed closely.

Between the 3 the first position was relieved several times and their advantage seemed to consolidate. Nino Schurter tried to attack several times but all of them were neutralized by Van der Poel who did not let go. Meanwhile, Maxime Marotte got in touch with the lead group.
