Phil Bauhaus (Team Sunweb) took victory in the sprint finish on stage five of the Critérium du Dauphiné, beating Arnaud Demare (FDJ) and Bryan Coquard (Direct Energie) to the line.

Thomas De Gendt finished safely in the peloton and as such remains in the overall lead for another day.

Friday’s sixth stage should see the top contenders battle it out in the mountains as it takes the peloton from Villars les Dombes to La Motte Servolex through the Mont du Chat, a punishing 8.7-km climb at an average gradient of 10.3 per cent.
