Dylan van Baarle won the final Criterium du Dauphine stage, while Jakob Fuglsang claimed the title in Champéry today.
The 34-year-old Astana rider finished with an overall time of 30:44:27, while Tejay Van Garderen (EF Education First) placed second on the general classification and Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) third.
This was Fuglsang’s second Dauphine title after winning the tour in 2017.
“This one is special because I got to ride in the yellow jersey. In 2017 I won two stages but this one is different, I’m super happy to bring the jersey to finish and win,” said Fuglsang, who also won this year’s Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
Wout van Aert (Team Jumbo-Visma) won the green jersey, Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) claimed the polka dot jersey, while Bjorg Lambrecht (Lotto Soudal) took the white jersey.
Team Ineos’ Van Baarle won the eighth stage, which covered 113.5km from Cluses, in 3:05:38. Jack Haig (Mitchelton-Scott) and Lotto Soudal’s Carl Fredrik Hagen came second and third respectively.
“This week had its ups and downs and everyone knows what happened with Chris [Froome]. I’m happy the team did really great with that. I’m just really happy,” said Van Baarle.
“In the past I really struggled in this race but I trained and worked so hard to be good here, I’m happy this came out of it all.”
