Primož Roglič took control of the Critérium du Dauphiné by taking victory on stage six at Le Collet d'Allevard which saw him move into the overall race lead ahead of the final two stages. 

The Slovenian appeared to be back to his best since his winter move to the German team from Visma-Lease a Bike, and launched a trademark powerful sprint in the final kilometre of the mountain stage which comfortably dispatched Giulio Ciccone (Lidl-Trek) from the back wheel of his Specialized Tarmac.
