Jeff Louder (BMC) outsprinted his late-stage breakmates for the win at the Beaumont Stage Race. The four men escaped on the descent of the final KOM and managed to stay away from a chasing field through the crosswinds to make it the finishing straight together. Louder won the sprint ahead of Will Routley (Jelly Belly) and Peter Stetina (Garmin-Holoweko Partners-Felt).  Ben Day (Fly V Australia) finished a few seconds later in the chase group.

With the time bonuses available at the finish, Louder moves into the lead in the overall classification. Tom Zirbel (Bissell), who was part of the break and  finished fourth on the stage. moves into the second spot.  Kirk Carlsen (Garmin-Holoweko Partners-Felt) is the new KOM leader and Louder also picked up the green sprinters jersey.
