Spaniard Jose Enrique Gutierrez attacked on the outskirts of the Mediterranean port, but he was hauled in by Piil and Sacchi who powered ahead along the glistening sea front.
The two sportingly shook hands before battling it out down the 2 km stretch to the finish and Piil, a former track rider, finally took the upper hand.
It was the first time in this year's Tour that an escape group had successfully stayed out in front.
