It was Stage One winner, Jaroslav Kulhavy (Specialized Racing), who decided the second stage of the Afxentia stage race. However, it was not voluntarily. The Olympic Silver Medal winner of Rio 2016 suffered a flat tyre in the longest downhill section and blocked the riders behind him.
This gave Jordan Sarrou (BH-Sr Suntour-KMC) and Sebastian Carstensen Fini (CST Sandd American Eagle) the chance to escape.
