South African wins the first ride in line in the Dauphiné, Dylan Teuns tried it in vain with a late attack

Daryl Impey, the first ride in line won in the Criterium du Dauphiné. The pack had seven climbs to conquer, but the finish was starting to decline. Some escapees saw their opportunity, without any result because they had no safe-conduct of the race. Dylan Teuns tried it with a late attack, without success. Also Nibali tried the pack to get, but it was Daryl Impey who, by force majeure to victory, he sprinted.

The rain caused anxiety in the peloton. At Sky they moved in large numbers to the front in the peloton for a crash to occur. The leader of the British formation, Geraint Thomas, came Sunday all fall during the prologue. But Sky decided soon after to the including of the escapees to other teams. Vital Concept took that task on themselves, the team has Bryan Coquard for the sprint.

Lotto Soudal drove the peloton with a thick, fifteen miles to go. The Belgian crew counted on Jens Keukeleire in the sprint and picked up the escapees. Brice Feillu, one of the escapees, picked up on the road enough bergpunten to Tuesday, the polka dot jersey. On the twelve kilometers of the line everything came back together. Also, the men of Quick Step were at the outposts to see.

Something less than ten kilometers from the end disfigures a crash to the preparation of the sprint. The Frenchman Vuillermoz, and the Dutchman Jos Van Emden were some of the victims. On the last little climb of the day fell, Dylan Teuns, but the Belgian was running on a counter of, among others, Julian Alaphilippe. Finally he sprinted a sizeable peloton for the victory. Vincenzo Nibali still tried to sprint to avoid a downtime to less than a kilometer, but that attack draagde not far. Daryl Impey sprint with force majeure to the victory.
