After the time trial, the first mid-mountain stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné was on the program this Thursday 8 June. Very quickly, a group of eight riders took off. Nils Politt (Bora-Hansgrohe), Georg Zimmermann (Intermarché), Jonas Gregaard (Uno-X), Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Dstny), Edvald Boasson-Hagen (TotalEnergies) and Leon Heinschke (Team DSM) received an exit voucher , but unfortunately for them, the peloton’s ambition was quite different.
The team in the yellow jersey Mikkel Bjerg did not leave much room for maneuver in the breakaway and played the game to keep the jersey at home. Subsequently, it was the men of the Soudal Quick Step of Julian Alaphilippe, the Jumbo Visma of Jonas Vingegaard and the Education First team of Richard Carapaz who took the lead to come to the breakaway before the last difficulties of the day. It was finally 16 kilometers from the finish that the coup de force was launched by Richard Carapaz and Jonas Vingegaard. The Dane did not stay in the wheel of the Olympic champion for long and left alone to finally win alone.
