Primož Roglič wins the Critérium du Dauphiné 2024

The Critérium du Dauphiné was intended as a dress rehearsal for the Tour de France, and it was a successful one. Primož Roglič won the race. It is Roglič's first win of a stage race this year. For BORA – hansgrohe, it is the first victory of the Dauphiné.


As a double stage winner, he laid the foundations over the last two days to take home the yellow jersey of the overall winner and the green jersey of the points classification. BORA –hansgrohe also won the team classification, underlining the squad’s unity ahead of the season's highlight.
 

Primož Roglič

It's crazy to win the Dauphiné. I started the day with a gap and was able to play a bit, but in the end, I had to go all in for the win. I was suffering from the efforts of the last three days. It was close, but it worked out in my favour. I want to really enjoy this moment because you don't win races like this every day.

 

Another mountain-top finish was planned for the final stage. After 160 kilometres, the Plateau des Glières was the race's final finish line. Wearing the yellow jersey, BORA – hansgrohe once again took responsibility in the peloton and controlled a large breakaway throughout the day. Things became exciting with 5km to go: Carlos Rodriguez attacked and managed to go clear from Primož Roglič with second-placed Matteo Jorgenson and third-placed Derek Gee. While Rodriguez fought for the stage win, Jorgenson and Roglič battled it out for the yellow jersey. Jorgenson finished second on the day - Roglič finished 6th and won the Critérium du Dauphiné by 8 seconds.
