The final stage came down to a reduced bunch sprint that saw Elise Delzenne (Lotto Soudal) win. Local rider Christine Majerus (Boels Dolmans) won the overall classification.

Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team was aggressive throughout the stage, taking turns to go on the attack. Allie Dragoo was the most successful, leading the race solo with a 50-second gap until a mechanical nullified the brave move. Vilmann put in several moves on the GPM climb, crossing the line first the final time up the climb. Her aggression was awarded a visit to the podium at the most competitive rider.
