Johnathan Freter did some un-planned off-road riding and took a tumble.  After the stage, he was “sore.. but good” and rode back to the hotel with the team.

The gravel section at mile 50 was picturesque and helped the break stay away.  There were many flats in the peloton, where riders were unable to choose their line.
