Geraint Thomas Wins The Dauphine

A big afternoon for Geraint Thomas with the British star claiming overall victory in the prestigious Dauphine in France.

The Team Sky rider held on to his yellow jersey on the final stage to claim one of the biggest victories of his road racing career and set himself up nicely for the Tour De France next month.

Thomas is expected to play second fiddle to Chris Froome in the tour next month but the Welshman has proven this week that he could well be a major contender himself if The Giro winner is unable to replicate his best form.

Yates Extends His Lead In The Giro D'Italia

Simon Yates goes into today's rest day at Giro with an extended lead in the General Classification thanks to a stunning ride to yesterday's Sappada summit.

The British rider leads second place Tom Dumoulin by two minutes and eleven seconds, with Chris Froome nearly five minutes down in seventh.

Dumoulin is expected to take a chunk out of Yates' lead in Tuesday's time trial but Yates should have enough time in hand now to keep his lead going into the reminder of the Tour which ends on Sunday.
