On-bike footage from stage two of the Critérium du Dauphiné (video)

Rider's eye view of the action inside the pro peloton on stage two of the 2015 Critérium du Dauphiné

Johan Van Summeren, Ben Gastauer (both Ag2r), Gatis Smukulis and Vladimir Isaychev (both Katusha) filmed sections of the second day at the 2015 Critérium du Dauphiné in France using on-bike cameras.

Van Summeren and Gastauer both used front-mounted cameras, whilst Smukulis and Isaychev had rearward-facing cameras. The footage was then edited together by race organiser ASO.

The resulting film gives you an insight into the workings of the peloton during stage two of the eight-day WorldTour race, as British rider Peter Kennaugh (Team Sky) wore the yellow jersey of race leader.

In one segment of the film, British rider Ian Stannard can be seen working for Kennaugh as the race traversed two categorised climbs, including the first category Col de Cuvéry at the mid-way point.

Towards the end of the video, we can see eventual stage winner Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) looking relaxed before he wound up his sprint in Villars-les-Dombes.

Despite a few crashes during the stage, all of the main contenders finished safely in the peloton at the same time as Bouhanni.

Stage three on Tuesday sees the riders take on the race’s only test against the clock, a team time trial from Roanne to Montagny over 24.5km. Kennaugh may yet retain the overall race lead if Sky puts in a solid performance on the stage – something that team leader Chris Froome will also be hoping for.
