Arnaud Demare dauphine 2017

Arnaud Demare (FDJ) won the second stage of the Criterium du Dauphine in a spectacular sprint for the finish in Arlanc.

The Frenchman won the stage by two lengths, leaving Alexander Kristoff (Katusha-Alpecin) and Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) to take second and third respectively.

“I knew it would be a hard day and a bunch sprint finish wasn’t a sure thing,” said Demare.

“Overall, it was a demanding stage but we were well focused at the end. I knew it could suit me and I’m happy to see the hard work paying off.”

The top riders here to prepare for the Tour de France finished safely in the main bunch as Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) retained the overall leader’s jersey.
