Critérium du Dauphiné Stage five: Thizy-les-Bourgs › Chaintré, 162.3km.

Ethan Hayter sealed his third top three of the Dauphine to move up to fourth overall after stellar work from the Grenadiers. 

Faced with a tough task of bringing back a strong four rider break on undulating terrain, the team worked tirelessly to bring the escapees to heel. 

Filippo Ganna, Laurens de Plus and Andrey Amador combined to reduce the gap significantly, before Jumbo Visma also joined the chase to setup a sprint. 

The final metres saw the leaders overtaken in dramatic fashion, with Hayter finishing third behind race leader Wout van Aert. The bonus seconds on the line ensured Hayter moves fourth overall with three stages remaining.

"I think maybe there was a moment of hesitation in the sprint. But my team were amazing today with what they did in the final, it was really incredible. Tomorrow might be easier than today in the finish. Probably BikeExchange will try to control again and we’ll see how it goes."
