Stage five of the 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné was a day for the GC contenders to take stock after yesterday’s re-jig of the overall rankings.

The day’s stage was expected to finish in a bunch sprint despite the lumpy climbs in the middle of the stage from La Tour du Salvangy to Mâcon.

The premature altitude gain in the French countryside is expected to be a great platform to launch a breakaway from. However, with only one categorised climb in the second half of the race the sprint teams will want to get their fast men up front for the day’s win.

Going into the day, stage one victor Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) continued his streak in the yellow jersey holding a slender 27 second lead over Australian Richie Porte (BMC Racing Team) after his victory yesterday.

Catch up with the highlights above, and also read our report of the day’s action.

The Dauphiné continues tomorrow with a 147.5km ride from Parc des Oiseaux – Villars-les-Dombes to La Motte-Servolex, as the peloton finally enters the mountains.
