  • Thomas tunes up for Tour with Dauphine success

Thomas extended his lead at the Criterium du Dauphine after finishing second behind stage six victor Pello Bilbao, but Martin put in another fine showing with one day of racing to come.

Thomas finished 60 seconds ahead of nearest rival Adam Yates, victor of the final stage, with an overall time of 24 hours, 43 minutes and 12 seconds.

Thomas also defended his overall race lead with a total time of 20:51:19.

Baudet and Martin, third and fourth in the overall standings respectively, were unable to stay with Thomas, who broke clear of their small group 500 metres from the line.

"Ive been feeling good all year", the Irishman said after the race.

It came on a 110 kilometres stage from Frontenex which is nearly a carbon copy of this year's Tour de France stage 11. "I explained to Geraint that of course, we're riding hard to win the stage".

The 32-year-old Thomas, victor of Paris-Nice in 2016, is coming into form at just the right time with the Tour de France a month away.

Yates said: "The Tour de France has been my main goal for the whole season".

Froome's Giro participation ensured he was absent from this year's Criterium du Dauphine as he rested up ahead of the Tour, where he will attempt to complete a rare Giro-Tour double. "I managed to get a few more bonus seconds which is good". Thomas came in second, managing to put further valuable seconds between himself and his rivals for the yellow leader.
