Boasson Hagen dedicates Dauphiné stage win to injured Dimension Data development rider

by Michael Better

The fourth stage of the Criterium du Dauphine was likely the final opportunity for the sprinters at this year’s race, and Norway’s Edvard Boasson Hagen was able to capitalize.

Boasson Hagen (Dimension Date) sprinted to victory ahead of Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-QuickStep) and Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) to take his first WorldTour win since 2013.

Alaphilippe appeared to be the fastest of the three podium finishers, but poor positioning meant he had too far to travel, running out of road in the end.

“It’s nice to get a win for Dimension Data,” Boasson Hagen said, dedicating the win to Dimension Data Continental team rider Keagan Girdlestone, who had a life-threatening crash on Sunday in Italy.

The twisty finish saw a crash, and gaps in the peloton, reshuffling the top of the general classification. Chris Froome (Sky) moved up to second overall, only four seconds behind Alberto Contador (Tinkoff), who retained his yellow jersey for another day. Richie Porte (BMC Racing) moved down to third, still six seconds adrift and Alaphilippe now sits fourth overall, nine seconds back.

    > allegations of torture by the prince have cause many in the cycling community to question whether or not a line should be drawn.
    Meanwhile, a boycott has been formed against US-funded teams until Gitmo is closed down.

      • Dave

        A non-binding resolution sounds cool – until you remember this is the body which has legislated standards for the bendiness of bananas.

        • Pete

          Yes, I agree that this will do absolutely nothing to American exceptionalism, if history is anything to go by. However, I was just trying to highlight that there was some international acknowledgement for US torture.

    • Dave

      The last US-funded team of which I am aware finished over ten years ago.

      • Pete

        I guess it depends on what we mean by “US-funded”. Maybe that’s not the right phrase. I was thinking of BMC, anyway. “US-owned” perhaps. Or “US-registered”.

      and Australia for being in breach of international law in its treatment of asylum seekers in offshore detention facilities.

      I think western nations get some kind of exemption though?

      • Pete

        I’m pretty sure some of that falls into “torture” for my mind. The only difference is we privatise our torture, which makes it okay.

    Second day in a row where the peloton doesn’t wait for the yellow jersey after it is held up in a crash. Nor did the teams that made up time on Contador protest the commissar’s decision to not award all riders the same time, even though they were inside the 3 km mark. There can be no more attacks on Nibali for not waiting for Froome in 2015 TDF or Kruijswijk at the 2016 Giro. From this point forward all of your arguments are baseless.

    • jules

      when you say the “yellow jersey”, you mean Contador. just pointing that out.

      • Neuron1

        Yes, Contador. But was using the vernacular regarding attacking the race leader following a mechanical or crash not of their own making. Read his comments on CN.

        • jules

          the crashed happened with 2km to go! no one is waiting with 2 km to go.

          • Neuron1

            I am aware of that. The point is that nobody is waiting for anybody, the unwritten rules are nonsense, a construct of the fans, and these guys are all racing to win. So if Froome, Contador, Quintana, or Nibali attacks anybody at any time it’s legitimate. After the Giro there was a great deal of polemica that Nibali should have waited for the pink jersey after the crash on stage 19. We now know that this is clearly not the peloton’s accepted practice, despite the Secret Pro’s protestations to the contrary.

    • Arfy

      I was wondering why there was a split, was it the Cofidis rider’s crash? Only two of them went down on the edge of a wide section of road, I’d not have expected that to cause a split.

  • Arfy

    Surely missed a headline opportunity with “Boasson-Hagen Belts Basher Bouhanni”? They had a good tussle, with Bouhanni trying to nudge Boasson-Hagen off the wheel then getting back as good as he got, and in the final sprint Boasson-Hagen with the elbows out drifted across just enough without being illegal. To his credit Bouhanni accepted he was beaten and didn’t complain, but still good to see him go down:)

    • Tim Ashton

      Always good seeing Bouhanni not win

  • Dave

    On the Tour of Korea article:

    > Opposite of convention the race officials allowed team DS Matt Winston to drive past the caravan deviation and follow his rider into the finish line to witness the feat.

    This is allowed where a solo leader comes in with a gap of over a minute.
