Today’s mid-mountain stage was just a warmup for most of the serious general classification contenders as the former champion of Spain took the win.
Spain’s Jesús Herrada patiently waited and then pounced to win Tuesday’s Criterium du Dauphine second stage as his compatriot Alberto Contador held on to the overall lead. Movistar’s Herrada overhauled France’s Tony Gallopin and two other riders in the closing stages of the 168km ride from Creches-sur-Saone to Chalmazel-Jeansagniere in the Loire.
