Lukas Pöstlberger (Bora-hansgrohe) has finished the second stage of the Criterium du Dauphine dressed in Yellow after his solo victory.

The Austrian rider was part of the escape of the day on the second day of the French race, which featured a rolling course. With 18 kilometres remaining, he attacked and continued by himself, doing a ride strong enough for him to cross the finish line on his own, eleven seconds before the pack, which also gave him the lead of the General Classification.

"I knew my shape is really good after my last training camp," said Pöstlberger. "When I received the performance plan of the race two weeks ago, I already had in mind to go for it at one of the first two stages. There are not many sprinters here and therefore, it is a little easier for breakaways to survive.

"I really suffered a lot the last 6 kilometres, but I did it. It is an incredible feeling to grab a stage win here and almost unbelievable to start tomorrow's stage in Yellow. I already look forward to that, it is one of my biggest successes for sure."
