The first real attack in the race came after a km of 20 into the race from Katie Colclough (Team 100% Me). Colclough gathered a lead of over one minute but was reeled in by nine chasers before the final time up the Kluisberg.

A 10 rider break including from Great Britain Elizabeth Armitstead (Lotto-Belisol), Katie Colclough (100% Me), Joanna Rowsell (100% Me) and Sharon Laws (Great Britain), from Sweden Emma Johansson (Red Sun), from The Netherlands Irene van den Broek (Leontien.nl) and from Belgium Ludivine Henrion (Red Sun), Annelies van Doorslaer (Lotto-Belisol), Jessie Daams (Topsport Vlaanderen) and Grace Verbeke (Lotto-Belisol) entered the final with a lead of over four minutes on the bunch.
