Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?


Another GC win for Team Sky

Geraint Thomas didn’t allow any surprises in the last stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné and controlled his GC opponents until the very last 200 metres. Then Adam Yates attacked and overtook the solo escapee Daniel Navarro in the closing metres. Bardet finished third while Thomas crossed the finish line just 19 seconds after the Mitchelton-Scott pro, securing his title. Thomas became only the fifth British rider to win the event. And he made a loud claim for team leadership should Chris Froome’s salbutamol case result in his absence from the Tour de France.

We’ve ALL been there

Sagan is ready for the Green Jersey battle

I’m very happy about this, and have to thank all my @borahansgrohe teammates for their support today at the @tourdesuisse_official. They trust me enough to work so hard through the day and it means I can go for the win. I was thinking about the team’s tactics and in the end, it worked out exactly as we had planned. I’m very happy to have won the stage. All my preparation has been good and I’m feeling a bit more relaxed about the rest of the race now. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into these wins behind the scenes. My legs aren’t at their best yet and I still have some work to do before @letourdefrance France, but I’m looking forward to the rest of the race.

Rozmýšľal som nad tým ako by sme to mali urobiť, ale nakoniec to vyšlo podľa plánu. Teším sa z etapového víťazstva, ale aj z toho, že moja príprava bola dobrá. Cítim, že všetko klape, môžem byť pokojný pred ďalšími etapami a aj naďalej pôjdeme naplno. Nohy zatial nemám v dokonalej forme, ale do Tour de France na tom ešte určite zapracujem a teším sa na nasledujúce pretekové dni.
