Formolo survives the relentless dominance of the Jumbo Train

The Italian won alone escaped. Roglic rewarded and extended advantages in the general. Mikel Landa is the best Spanish, fifth classified.


From the Ineos train, to the Jumbo train. Changing of the guard. The Dutch team dominates with an iron fist in the unusual 2020 season. The names of their wagons can be just as easy to memorize as the mythical football lineups: Van Aert, Tony Martin, Gesink, Kuss, Dumoulin, Kruijswijk and Roglic, solid leader of the Dauphiné. His pace did not allow joys on the climb to Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, and in the final meters Roglic released his rivals and won with six seconds of second place. Davide Formolo escaped and Egan Bernal relented, although there were no attacks between the roosters.

The peloton flew in the first hour of the race (it completed 50.3 kilometers) and, therefore, a level break was formed: Formolo (UAE), Jungels (Deceuninck), Latour (Ag2r), Oss (Bora), Juul Jensen (Mitchelton), Sütterlin and Kragh Andersen (Sunweb), Niv (Israel) and Chevalier (Vital Concept). Formolo crowned the Madeleine with about six minutes of income over the group (in which Jumbo and Arkea led), which made it the virtual yellow jersey of the race. The Italian, with his characteristic stuck pedaling, had the strength to take the partial victory, which is not a little given the superiority of the Jumbo.

Despite his statements on the networks, in which he affirmed that he is "much better" than in the Tour de l'Ain, Chris Froome got off the hook twelve kilometers from crowning Saint-Martin-de-Belleville. Alejandro Valverde, who also announced "better feelings" than in the Vuelta a Burgos, was seven from the finish line. Geraint Thomas, four. Two weeks before the Tour de France starts, the two Movistar bosses, Enric Mas and Valverde, and the trident of Ineos, Bernal, Thomas and Froome, still need to shoot to reach the point optimally. Instead, Mikel Landa seems on the right track. Fifth overall, "we must not rule out anything in the last two days of the Dauphiné", although Roglic and the Jumbo are above.
