Critérium du Dauphiné
Stage 8: Sisteron - Risoul - Stage Details

For the second consecutive Critérium du Dauphiné stage, Travis Meyer escaped from the bunch. The Western Australian was part of a 24-rider move that formed in opening kilometres of the final day of racing at the French tour. By the time the race reached the Col de Vars, Meyer was one of only five men left ahead of the peloton.

Meyer’s breakmate, Alessandro de Marchi (Cannondale) was the lone survivor from the shattered escape group. The Italian went on to claim the stage win 24” ahead of race leader Chris Froome (Sky).

"Travis Meyer took his chance in the break the last two days, and he was in contention for the win today. He did exactly what we wanted to see riders to do here." - Sport Director Matt Wilson
