The Omega Pharma-Quick Step rider, who clinched the win just by a fraction of a wheel, initially thought that Sagan had won the stage and went to congratulate him while crossing the finish line.

However, a photo finish proved that Trentin took the honour, while Tony Gallopin and Tom Dumoulin came in third and fourth respectively.

Team Sky's Richie Porter secured a comfortable finish after moving to the front of the pack with 1km left to go in the stage, which began in Epernay and ended in Nancy.
