Dauphiné’18 Final Stage: Thomas Trumps Overall

PeloPics: Geraint Thomas concluded the 70th Critérium du Dauphiné on a high note after a crash-marred start as he went down during the prologue in Valence. The team time trial reinstated him as a favourite but his Team Sky team-mates Michal Kwiatkowski and Gianni Moscon anticipated his reign in the yellow-blue jersey. Time bonus collected at all mountain stage finishes before the conclusive rush to Saint-Gervais/Le Bettex put him in the ideal situation to claim his second WorldTour stage race overall after Paris-Nice 2016 at the age of 32. Despite two punctures, he kept the last stage under his control but couldn’t follow Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) who went for the stage win in the last kilometre in a cruel move for early breakaway rider Dani Navarro (Cofidis).
