In the first belgian classics race of the season, Offredo finished 4th at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.[5] One month later, he started at the Milan-San Remo, and finished 7th which is his best ever result in a monument classic.[6] A week later he started the Gent-Wevelgem and just missed out of top 10, with an 11th place finish. Offredo crashed in Wevelgem, and suffered a heel injury, thus not starting the Tour of Flanders.[7]

Offredo started his 2nd Tour de France on July 7th, and was also in the breakaway securing the Combativity Award as he did in on the first mass start stage in 2017. Offredo was also in the breakaway on Stage 7 but as the stage was 231 km's long, and was the only man in the breakaway he quickly returned back to the peloton.
