Teuns won, Pinot selected and Froome and Nairo responded

The eight ports between Mauriac and Craponne and Pinot's attack forced the favorites to show up. Teuns won the stage and is the new leader.

The second stage of this Dauphiné, with eight score points, forced the race favorites to show their cards and to live a kind of simulation for the Tour with real fire. An attack by Thibaut Pinot on the last climb, to Saint- Victor-sur-Arlanc, provoked the reaction of 'the roosters', who came to his wheel, including Chris Froome and Nairo Quintana, and formed a group with the elite of the race, while Bardet, Dan Martin, Porte or Kruijswijk did show more weaknesses. The stage was played ahead, where Dylan Teuns took the victory in his duel with Guillaume Martin and is the new leader of the race.

However the Ineos, in what seemed like an essay of control show in the Tour, never left to make excessive way.

Once hunted, attacks returned with Lutsenko, Gilbert, Pauwels ... and the pair formed by Teuns and Martin, who would play the victory. However, was Pinot who made react to the favorite theorists, who were forced to jump for the French of Groupama. Froome (with Poels as squire), Nairo, Adam Yates, Woods ... yes they could weld to their wheel, while Bardet, Dan Martin, Kruijswijk or Porte gave 44 "in goal with the winner and 31" with the first group of important names Tom Dumoulin, after his escape attempt, let himself go and arrived at 8: 50.
