Wout van Aert has taken back-to-back wins at the Critérium du Dauphiné.  After his maiden World Tour win against the clock yesterday, van Aert turned sprinter to take stage 5 ahead of Sam Bennett of BORA-Hansgrohe and Julian Alaphilippe of Deceuninck-Quick Step.  Dion Smith of Mitchelton-SCOTT also secured a top 20 result.

The first of two stages to top the 200km mark, stage 5 from Boën-sur-Lignon to Voiron was a last chance for the sprinters before the serious climbing kicked off.  The stage was not straightforward for the fast men either, with a very rolling course that featured four categorised climbs early on and then a nuggety uphill stretch in the closing kilometres to tackle before the finish.

An early break saw Alessandro De Marchi of CCC Team, Stéphane Rossetto of Cofidis and Yoann Bagot of Vital Concept-B&B Hotels go on the offensive.  The trio held a lead of 2.19mins with 68km to go but it was De Marchi who was the notable danger man of the group; with a rich history of breakaway activity.  BORA-Hansgrohe took it on themselves to chase the break down and they had the break within reach with the break down to just 1.30mins with 60km remaining; but the gap proceeded to grow and then shrink all the way to the closing kilometre.

De Marchi was the last man standing of the trio, attacking Rossetto with 1.4km to go before being caught by a two-up attack from Edvald Boasson Hagen of Dimension Data – victorious in the race’s opening stage – and Philippe Gilbert of Deceuninck-Quick Step.  The roads were technical and the pair put in a good effort to make the move stick, but with Shane Archbold of BORA-Hansgrohe bearing down on them it was only a matter of time until the catch was made. The duo lasted until just over 400m to go at which point the fast finishers took over.  

Archbold dropped Bennett off perfectly through the final tight corner, but it looked as though the Irishman paused slightly, allowing a few other riders to box him in slightly and stall the sprint.  Julian Alaphilippe took full advantage and initially looked strong in the fight for the line.  But it was Wout van Aert who managed to come through and take a convincing win in the sprint finish; with Sam Bennett recovering impressively but having to settle for second place.

Dion Smith looked after new race leader Adam Yates of Mitchelton-SCOTT excellently; with the Brit crossing the line in 12th place to keep his overall lead of four seconds over Dylan Teuns.  Dion Smith crossed the line in 17th place, while Van Aert’s second successive victory sees him climb to 5th overall at 20 seconds behind Yates.
