On the final stage of the eight-day French tour Criterium du Dauphine, Paul Voss has once again demonstrated his top form. He climbed to 14th place and ended the tour on 23rd rank. Today’s destination was Modane Valfrejus - the starting point of the penultimate stage of this year's Tour de France. After an attack in the final kilometer, Chris Froome (Sky) secured the stage win and the overall victory.

 

The day was again determined by many attacks and changing race situations. Shortly after the start, a small group was established and several riders joined in the first 20 kilometers. Cristiano Salerno attempted a counter-attack on the first climb, but he was brought back by the field. In the final, it came again to many attacks, but on the last climb of the race the climbers took over again.

 

"As in the last days, it was very fast from the beginning. We had planned to go in the group - which did not work out. But the stage has shown that Sky controlled the race so that the group would not make it. Therefore, the guys were compact in the field and they have shown again a good performance on the climbs. Björn [Thurau] didn’t feel well unfortunately and was forced to abandon the race. All others went to the limit once again and with the Top15 result of Paul, we can be satisfied", says Enrico Poitschke, Sport Director of BORA – ARGON 18.

 

"We have seen over the Dauphine, that there is an upward trend in the performance of all the riders and that was exactly our goal here. This was the last test for the climbers before the Tour de France and we won some good insights. Of course, yesterday's crash of Dominik [Nerz} casts a shadow on the race. We hope he recovers quickly and can train again very soon", continued Poitschke.
