Criterium de Dauphine - Race Overview

22-year-old Simon Yates has put in an incredible ride on the final stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné to finish second and secure fifth overall and best young rider.

“Had I been promised to finish fifth overall at the start of the week, I would have signed for it,” Yates said.

“It wasn't just a battle against Bardet for the white jersey. I wanted to beat as many guys as I could on GC, even Rui Costa but that didn't work out. I'm happy with fifth place.”
