Going in to the final 1km, long time attacker Yannick Martinez (La Pomme Marseille) was still in front of the peloton and had Benoît Vaugrenard (FDJ) with him for company.

However, they were swallowed up, allowing Cammaerts to burst clear and take the victory in the 184km race by seven seconds from Yauheni Hutarovich (AG2R La Mondiale) and Laurent Pichon (FDJ).

The Coupe de France consists of a number of standalone races in France and is open for all riders, but only French riders who are part of a French team are able to score points.
