The German narrowly held off Jon Aberasturi in the final sprint. Rui Oliveira (UAE Team Emirates) was third.
“The finish was extremely fast with a slight downhill in the last km,” said Bauhaus after his fourth stage victory of the year. “It was key to be in front at the roundabout 700m to go, and the team did a great job today. We were in the forefront all the time, we controlled the events all the time, I came to the finish in an excellent position, and as a sprinter, I couldn’t be more satisfied.”
