Jumbo-Visma's Promoz Roglic has climbed to the top of the overall classification at the Criterium du Dauphine after winning the second stage of the race.

Although it was Ineos the team in control during the last climb of the day, Jumbo-Visma made its move during the last stretch of the day with Sepp Kuss, who set a great rhythm to allow Roglic to jump when he was ready. The Slovenian didn't disappoint and made an acceleration that left all the competition behind and gave him the victory of the day and placed him on top of the General Classification.

"It is a good result for our team", Roglic said. "We have shown once again that we prepared well for these races. The whole team did a great job, and I am glad I was able to finish it off. We knew it was going to be a difficult stage with a tough final climb. Perhaps the toughest this week. We controlled the stage from the start. The boys were very strong and we finished it perfectly.

"I am very happy with this victory. I certainly cannot complain with how it is going after having won the Tour de l’Ain and this stage. I am happy with every race I can ride this year, and I am very happy with the way things are going now. Both for me and for the team. But we are not there yet. The next three days are going to be tough, and we have to stay sharp and focused."
