Stage four of the 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné saw GC conteders battle it our from La Tour du Pin to Bourgion-Jaileu on a 23.5km individual time trial.

An awkward distance, the 23.5km route wasn’t exactly flat meaning riders struggled to get into a good rhythm in the saddle.

The rolling parcours also created cause for concern with sharp bends in the French countryside, throwing up its own problems for overexcited riders.

Going into the day, stage one victor Thomas de Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) continued his streak in the yellow jersey holding a 48 second lead over Frenchman, Axel Domont (AG2R La Mondiale) with the GC conteders 1-09 back as we saw previously on stage three.

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

The Dauphiné continues tomorrow with a 175.5km ride from La Tour de Salvangy to Macon, which, after some bumpy climbs in the middle, is expected to finish in a bunch sprint.
