Criterium du Dauphine 2017: Kennaugh wins stage 7 while Froome loses time on Porte

Criterium du dauphine


Team Sky’s Peter Kennauagh from Britain took the stage seven’s victory on the Criterium du Dauphine 2017 tour. While on the other hand, the defending champion, Chris Froome lost time on Richie Porte, the overall leader.


Kennaugh was able to take the lead by pulling away Ben Swift during the last, 3-kilometre part. He won by 13 seconds against the British rider.

The last part of the Alpe d’Huez stage brought many dynamics in different parts of the route. Richie Porte took measures to attack Froome and gain another 23 seconds leaving him again on the second place.


Today’s the final stage and it will see riders’ struggle to keep up their position in a rough mountain track with a route that ends on the summit of the Plateu de Solaison.
