Adam Yates won the final stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné consolidating his second place overall on Sunday. The British rider attacked Romain Bardet (Ag2R La Mondiale) and Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) in the final 200m of the day's 136km stage, overtaking solo escapee Daniel Navarro in the closing metres to take his second victory of an injury blighted year.

Bardet managed to finish third on the day, while Team Sky's Thomas was fifth, a 19 second deficit easily enough to maintain his general classification lead and take overall victory.
