Stage three of the 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné took the peloton from Le Chambon-sur-Lignon to Tullins on a 184km route.

Starting up high – after 6.5km the race crested 1,042m – a quick descent followed with four categorised climbs before the race’s end.

The final ascent came 40km before the finish but the rolling nature of the day’s parcours meant that it could suit a breakaway or a rouleur. The flat roll-in, however, will have had the sprinters teams licking their lips for a third successive sprint.

Going into the day, stage one victor Thomas de Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) held a 48 second lead over Axel Domont (AG2R La Mondiale) with the general classification contenders all 1:09 back.

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

The Dauphiné continues tomorrow with a 23.5km individual time trial from La Tour-du-Pin to Bourgion-Jalieu, which takes place on undulating terrain. It is likely that it will see the first GC battle.
