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.
