John Degenkolb sprinted to third place from a reduced group that arrived at the finish of stage 16 after a crosswind section split the peloton with 15-kilometers to go. With many riders caught out, including many of the top sprinters, the odds for Degenkolb looked good, but in the final meters ahead of the line, Michael Matthews (Sunweb) moved slightly into Degenkolb's path, enough to impede his progress.
