Thomas cements Dauphine pole as Bilbao wins stage READ MORE

Geraint Thomas admitted the magnitude of winning the 2018 Criterium du Dauphine took a while to sink in, but the Team Sky man was determined to enjoy his success before contemplating what lies ahead with the Tour de France.

Mitchelton-Scott's Briton Adam Yates was 26 seconds behind the stage victor in fifth. Now I realise I've won a massive race.

Sir Bradley Wiggins won the race for a second time in 2012 before going on to become the first British victor of the Tour, while Froome has won it on four occasions, each time going on to claim the yellow jersey in Paris.

It came on a 110 kilometres stage from Frontenex which is nearly a carbon copy of this year's Tour de France stage 11.

"I was counting down the kilometres on the last climb and knew I had about 1'20" to lose to Adam Yates so, as each kilometre went by, I was more confident and happy.

Yates said: "The Tour de France has been my main goal for the whole season".

"I made a good recovery though and I'm in good shape, ready for the next training block ahead of the Tour".

Dan Martin's resurgence at Critérium du Dauphiné continued with a third-place finish on Saturday's penultimate day of racing that sees the Irish cyclist two and a half minutes down on leader Geraint Thomas.

It gave them a 19 second lead over Team Sunweb and a 27 second advantage over Quick-Step Floors. Daniel Martin (IRL) UAE Team Emirates +24 7. Emanuel Buchmann (GER/BOR) 14, 5. Pierre Latour (FRA) AG2R La Mondiale +35 10.

Thomas is next due to race in the National Road Race championships in Northumberland where he is down to do the time trial (29 June) and the road race (1 July).
