The race was Van Avermaet’s first WorldTour outing since Liege-Bastogne-Liege in late April and, despite finishing no higher than 15th on stage 3, he makes it three months at top spot thanks to the lead he built up over the spring.
Gilbert moves from sixth to fifth at the expense of Team Sky’s Michal Kwiatkowski thanks to his stage 2 victory. He earned 60 points for that win and added another 20 by finishing in the top 30 overall.
Peter Sagan’s two stage wins weren’t enough to propel him up the standings, and he remains locked in ninth.
Izaguirre flopped on stage 4 but fought back to finish third on stage 6, second on stage 7, and fourth overall. Previously 13th, he jumps into 10th, pushing down Alberto Contador, Sergio Henao, and Thibaut Pinot.
The rest of the top 10 is made up of riders who didn’t add to their tallies in the past week. Tom Dumoulin, fourth, abandoned the race, while most others had instead raced the Critérium du Dauphiné the previous week.
