Bora-hansgrohe's Sam Bennett has taken his seventh victory of the season in the third stage of the Criterium du Dauphine. The Irishman was the strongest of the sprinters in the final metres of the route.

The German team took control of the peloton at all times in order to force a final sprint, knowing the good shape that Bennett is showing at the moment. Bora-hansgrohe and particularly Shane Archbold managed to put the rider in an ideal position for him to launch the strong sprint that gave him the day's victory.

"I am super happy to take the win today," he commented after the finish line. "It's certainly not just my victory, the team rode absolutely amazing today and the support I got is what made that win look so easy! Therefore, a huge thanks to the whole team for the effort. Let's hope the legs are still good for stage 5 in two days."

The next stage of the French race is a 26.1-kilometre individual time trial in Roanne and the day after there is another day suitable for the fast men.
