Herrada times finishing kick to perfection to win Dauphiné stage, Contador keeps yellow

by Michael Better

For one man on the podium, timing was everything. For the other two, it was a matter of wondering what might have been.

After a breakaway was caught in the final hundred metres of Stage 2 of the Criterium du Dauphine Tuesday, Jesus Herrada (Movistar) timed his finishing kick to perfection to take the victory.

Behind him, Tony Gallopin (Lotto-Soudal) and Serge Pauwels (Dimension Data), both from the breakaway, were left fighting for scraps after their late-race breakaway was caught in sight of the finish line.

“I tried to keep as much strength as I could for the finale,” Herrada said.

“I knew how it would be at the end, so I didn’t want to waste any energy to be at 100% for the sprint. We came across to the breakaway guys 500 metres before the line. Dani [Moreno] attacked, I finished it. I’m very happy. Tinkoff worked all day and Etixx-QuickStep rode hard before the [second last] climb. The finale suited me well. It was all about coming fresh to the last kilometer.”
