Groenewegen rode his Oltre XR4 to success in 4:56:07, outsprinting Arnaud Démare and Jasper Philipsen. Groenewegen had inaugurated the 2019 season topping Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana's fifth and final stage.
On the same day, Team Jumbo Visma's Steven Kruijswijk placed third in Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista del Sol's stage-4, 119,9 km from Armilla to Granada (Spain). Kruijswijk got to the finish in the first chasing group, along with the top GC contenders, with a 26-second gap from winner Simon Yates. Kruijswijk moved up from fourth to third in the GC, 11 seconds behind Jakob Fuglsang and 4 seconds behind Ion Izagirre.
Bianchi supplies the Team Jumbo-Visma with four models engineered with the Bianchi CV system powered by Countervail: 
•             Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control 
•             Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
•             Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke 
•             Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, providing remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reducing muscular fatigue
