Dylan Teuns wins stage 2 of the Criterium du Dauphine

Dylan Teuns (Bahrain-Merida) won stage 2 of the Criterium du Dauphine ahead of breakaway companion Guillaume Martin (Wanty-Group Gobert)

Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) won the bunch sprint for third place, 13 seconds behind the two leaders, to securing bonus seconds for the overall classification.

Teuns moved into the race lead after stage 1 winner Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) was distanced from the main bunch on the final climb, finishing 1:48 down on Teuns. The Norwegian lost the maillot jaune to Teuns.

The peloton was fractured on the final climb of the Côte de Saint-Victor-sur-Arlanc, Guillaume Martin and Dylan Teuns broke away.

Behind, Thibaut Pinot attacked over the climb with Michael Woods and Chris Froome chasing, while Romain Bardet, Dan Martin and Richie Porte were 40 seconds behind. 

Yellow jersey holder Edvald Boasson Hagen was more than a minute back.

“I’m super happy with this” the Belgian rider commented after beating Guillam Martin in a two-up sprint “This is something special. My last win was in Poland almost 24 months ago and this one is also a really nice victory”.

Then it was a man on man sprint with Martin opening up earlier and Dylan showed to be the strongest, taking a very beautiful win and the yellow jersey too: “It’s a dream come true. I’m really proud to wear this jersey and to win my first lion. I will fight and give everything to keep it”.
