    Jumbo-Visma rider Jonas Vingegaard claims victory at the Criterium du Dauphine ahead of Tour de France defense

    In an unexpected turn of events, Danish cyclist Jonas Vingegaard has clinched the title at this year’s Criterium du Dauphine. The Jumbo-Visma rider finished two minutes and 23 seconds ahead of Team Emirates and British cycling star Adam Yates.

    The eight-stage event in France concluded in Grenoble with Trek-Segafredo’s Giulio Ciccone winning the final stage after bouncing back from a bout with Covid-19 that forced him to withdraw from Giro d’Italia in May. Despite his illness, Ciccone was able to secure a win thanks to his improved form over the course of the week-long race.

    A Surprising Finish for Vingegaard

    Despite being seen as one of the favorites for this year’s Tour de France, few expected Jonas Vingegaard to come out on top so soon before defending his title next month. Speaking after claiming victory, he admitted surprise at how things played out:

    “I’m a little surprised by the gaps; I can only be very satisfied. I’m in good shape now and going to relax for a few days before fine-tuning my preparation for Le Tour.”

    Vingegaard is confident but must keep up his training regimen if he hopes to defend his hard-won crown against some tough competition this summer.

    Ciccone’s Stage Win

    Meanwhile, Giulio Ciccone was thrilled to have won the final stage of this week-long race and is looking forward to building on his performance going into the next round of competitions. Speaking after his win, he said:

    “The last 500 meters were really long, but with all the people there it was really nice. I looked behind and saw I was still in front with some gap, so I just went straight. I’m really happy.”
