The first stage was won by the Spaniard Mikel Aristi (Delko) in a 20-man leading group ahead of Tony Hurel (France / Direct Énergie). The next group followed, six seconds behind. Aristi took over the overall management.
In the last climb of the day, Thomas Voeckler (France / Direct Énergie) attacked with Eduard Worganow (Russia / Minsk CC) and Awet Habtom (Eritrea). However, the group was caught up again. So it came to the mass sprint. This time Tony Hurel (France / Direct Energy) won ahead of Mikel Aristi (Spain / Delko), who defended the overall lead.
The seventh and final stage ended in the sprint of a four-man breakaway group. This decided Meron Abraham (Eritrea) before Asbjørn Kragh Andersen (Denmark / Delko) for themselves. Yohann Gène (France / Direct Énergie) crossed the finish line with the field that was three seconds behind and was able to defend his yellow jersey and thus won the entire tour for the second time since 2013.
