The 67th edition of the Critérium du Dauphiné came to a close in Modane Valfrėjus on Sunday. Cannondale-Garmin closed out the eight day French tour with two riders in the top ten. Dan Martin jumped up one spot overall on the final stage, slotting into seventh place on the general classification. Andrew Talansky rounded out the top ten overall.


The Green Argyle squad rode a strong race from start to finish posting top ten results, from four different riders, on six of the ten stages. Ramunas Navardauskas and Nathan Haas featured in the sprints while Talansky and Martin came to fore in the mountains.


Sunday’s stage saw Chris Froome (Team Sky) attack out of an elite group of ten riders, including Martin, and solo to stage victory and the overall win. Martin came to the finish line up to the ski resort of Valfréjus alone, cresting the mini-summit in seventh place on the stage. Talanksy finished in 19th place.



"We saved our best team performance of the week for the final stage, and it was on from kilometer zero. The team did incredible work today as they did every day this week," sports director Andreas Klier said.


"Andrew had some problems with allergies today but he still fought all the way to the finish line and I respect that. Dan tried attacking in the steepest part. He was nearly next to Froome, but that’s when [Wout} Poels (Team Sky) accelerated and then Froome attacked."


"It was a hard week, but I am very happy with the work from everyone – riders and staff."



"It’s been such a hard week. I’m really tired, but I know that everyone is in the same boat," Maetin said.


"The team really did incredible this week, every day, for Andrew and for me. When we needed to be in the front, the guys were there. Every team wanted to be on the front for the climbs, and we were the ones that did it.


"I was building for an attack with three kilometers to go, moving up alongside the group. I tried to carry my momentum into the steepest part of the climb, but that’s when Pols accelerated, too. I couldn’t match it, and I ended up going back to the group.


"I’m really happy with the gains I got out of such a hard race this week, and I’m looking forward to July."
