Bahrain-Merida’s Teuns claims Dauphine lead with stage two win

  • Sport

Bahrain-Merida’s Dylan Teuns took the overall lead of the Criterium du Dauphine after beating France’s Guillaume Martin in a tense sprint finish of Monday’s second stage.

Belgian Teuns and Wanty-Gobert’s Martin of France ended 13 seconds ahead of the peloton despite a late attempt to rein them in by the chasing pack which included Britain’s Chris Froome, who is looking for a record fourth overall win in the eight-stage race.

Teuns, 27, claimed the yellow jersey from Norway’s Edvald Boasson Hagen who won the opening stage on Sunday but could only cross the finish line 1min 48sec behind on the second.

Four-time Tour de France winner Froome is preparing for this year’s Grand Boucle and is a part of six-man group 24sec behind Teuns on the general leaderboard.

Tuesday’s 177 km third stage heads north through rolling hills from Le Puy-en-Velay to the town of Riom outside Clermont-Ferrand.
