Team Ineos' Dylan van Baarle has taken the victory of the last stage of the Criterium du Dauphine, his first in a WorldTour race. Jakob Fuglsang crossed the finish line with the favourites and claimed the overall win of the French competition.

The last stage of the French race was 113.5 kilometres long between Cluses and Champery over a route that included two climbs of the first category and four of the third category, including the mountain finish. A breakaway of 12 was formed in the first kilometres and featured names like Dylan van Baarle, Jack Haig, Julian Alaphilippe, Alessandro De Marchi and Carl Fredrik Hagen.

As the front group went through the climbs, it lost members until only Van Baarle and Haig remained, meanwhile things in the peloton remained relatively calm with the exception of the withdrawal of Adam Yates due to fever.

Van Baarle and Haig arrived together to the finish line and the Dutchman of Ineos had the strongest sprint, taking the second stage win for the team in a row and his first victory in a WorldTour race. Hagen, Warren Barguil and Sepp Kuss completed the top five of the day.

Astana's Jakob Fuglsang crossed the finish line with the favourites' group and confirmed the overall victory of the race. EF Education First's Tejay Van Garderen and Bora-hansgrohe's Emanuel Buchmann completed the final podium of the race.
