Yesterday, Wout van Aert missed the opportunity to win the second stage in the Dauphiné after the first, the peloton miscalculated on the refugees. Today, the Belgian champion can already take revenge: the 3rd stage ends on a 2nd category climb after 6.2 km at 5.6%. Follow the course here from 12.30 pm, from 3.25 pm there are also live images on One and in our live stream.

  1. 2 p.m. 09. 6 leaders. 3 + 3 = 6 Pierre Rolland (B&B) Sebastian Schönberger (B&B) Alexis Gougeard (B&B) Miguel Heidemann (B&B) Jonas Gregaard (Uno-X) Thomas Champion (Cofidis).
  2. 2 p.m. 06. A fusion of the two trios is in the air. Rolland and co have another 50 seconds to brush away.  †
  3. 14 hours 06.
  4. 14 hours 03. Whether we will check? I suspect not. † Ethan Hayter (Ineos Grenadiers).
  5. 14 hours 01.
  6. 13h 58. Tomorrow. Let’s take a quick look at tomorrow: the Dauphiné has a time trial of just under 32 kilometers in store. The course is very gently undulating and above all quite long. This is an ideal test for the penultimate stage of the Tour de France, a 40.7 kilometer task against the clock.  †
  7. 13h54. The B&B Hotels team pursuit pays off. The trio of pursuers still owe 1’55”, if only the question is what it will all yield. Before the final slope of 2nd category there is only a hop of 4th category, good for only 1 point. inset is by Pierre Rolland… .
  8. 13 hours 49. Yesterday was a great day for the French. Alexis Vuillermoz won the stage and he also became the first Frenchman since Christophe Moreau in the leader’s jersey of the Dauphiné. Moreau also won the Dauphiné that year, in 2007. He then crowed victory on Mont Ventoux. Different times, 15 years ago.  †
  9. 1 p.m. 46. Overview . 3 leaders: Schönberger, Gregaard, Champion 3 counter-attackers: Rolland, Gougeard and Heidemann at 3’00” platoon at 4’20” .
  10. 13h 43. 3 B&B riders counterattack. What did we say about the bad atmosphere at B&B? The thundermail of Jérôme Pineau seems to pay off, because no fewer than 3 riders of the French team are going to counterattack: mountain king Pierre Rolland is assisted by teammates Alexis Gougeard and Miguel Heidemann. And that while their companion Sebastian Schönberger picks up the first mountain points of the day.  †
  11. 13 hours 41. With an average of 40.1 km/h we are close to the slowest schedule. Then we expect the finish around 4.45 pm.  †
  12. 13 hours 38.
  13. 13:33. I’m being watched, but I’m taking it easy this week. I don’t really aim for a result and I consider this Dauphiné as training. † Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma).
  14. 13 hours 32. For whom is (a first) D-Day today? Tao Geoghegan Hart, Eddie Dunbar, Michal Kwiatkowski (Ineos Grenadiers) Wilco Kelderman (Bora-Hansgrohe) Jack Haig, Damiano Caruso, Dylan Teuns (Bahrain Victorious) Enric Mas (Movistar) Primoz Roglic, Jonas Vingegaard, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma ) Ben O’Connor (AG2R-Citroën) David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) Chris Froome (Israel-Premier Tech) Tobias Johannessen (Uno-X) Brandon McNulty, Juan Ayuso, George Bennett (UAE) Ruben Guerreiro (EF-EasyPost) Warren Barguil (Arkea-Samsic) Jan Hirt (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert) Steff Cras (Lotto-Soudal) .
  15. 13h28. The leading group approaches the first slope of the day. At the end of the first hour of competition their lead is 3’35”.
  16. 13 hours 23. In the front the two of them even fall for a moment, but this time it is not a conscious move. Jonas Gregaard is pushed back on track after a flat tire.  †
  17. 13h 20. Omer Goldstein is well and truly back in the pack. 3 or 4 leaders, it doesn’t matter much to the large group. 2’40” tells the stopwatch.  .
  18. 13:00 16. Israel-Premier Tech clarifies the “recall” of attacker Omer Goldstein: “With only 3 fellow refugees in the leading group, he lowers himself to help the team towards the difficult finish”, it sounds somewhat hollow.  †
  19. 13 h 14.
  20. 1 pm 11. Whether Wout van Aert is the top favourite? Of course. His form is very good again. † Dylan Teuns (Bahrain Victorious).
