    Finally the victory for Alessandro de Marchi, Chris Froome overall winner of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2013A mountaineous stage ended up the Critérium du Dauphiné today. Just like in yesterday's stage a big breakaway group was formed early in the stage and in the end it was one of the riders of this group who won the stage. Indeed, Alessandro de Marchi (Cannondale) placed a final attack at the right moment in the climb towards Risoul to get over the very well performing Tim Wellens (Lotto-Belisol) and win the stage.

    The summary of the 8th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2013: Sisteron > Risoul

    The 8th and final stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 started this morning under a timid sun in Sisteron but the weather quickly got worse on the road towards the final climb up to Risoul.

    This road showed the first difficulty of the day after about 50 kilometers, the Côte de la Bréole of the 3rd category, before the final part with the Col de Vars and the final climb towards the Risoul ski station, both first category.

    Rapidly after the start a big group of 19 riders got away from the peloton and in a few kilometers this group created a gap around 3 minutes.

    In this group we found some usual breakaway riders in this race including Tim Wellens (Lotto-Belisol), Gianni Meersman (Omega Pharma-QuickStep), Alessandro De Marchi (Cannondale) but also Thomas Damuseau (Argos-Shimano), wearing the polka dot jersey of KOM leader.

    The French rider of the Dutch team thus took the points on top of the Côte de la Bréole, ahead of Juan Antonio Flecha (Vacansoleil-DCM) and Anthony Geslin (FDJ). By taking these points, Damuseau became sure to win the polka dot jersey at the end of this race.

    The next rider to take some additional points for the classification corresponding to the jersey he was wearing is Gianni Meersman who wins the intermediate sprint in Jausiers and the Belgian rider is then almost sure to keep his jersey, in this case the green jersey of the points classsification, since only Chris Froome (Team Sky) could take it away from him, by winning the stage.

    On the climb of the Col de Vars, Tim Wellens and Alessandro de Marchi attack and get away from the breakaway group in which they were so far. They get company from Travis Meyer (Orica-GreenEDGE) and the rider whose brother won the time trial at the Tour de Suisse yesterday continues without the two other riders by placing another accelleration. De Marchi however manages to get back on the Australian rider in the last kilometers of the climb, while Tim Wellens does the same at the start of the descent.

    This leading trio then gets company from Manuel Quinziato (BMC Racing Team) and Alberto Losada (Katusha). Before the climb towards Risoul, Tim Wellens again gets distanced but right from the first uphill parts of this final climb, the young Belgian rider gets back on the kind of terrain on which he performs best and he thus manages to get back on the leading group and even to distance the riders he just got back on. Wellens then shows a good performance but De Marchi, who also attacked from the former leading group, manages to get back on him and then goes off alone at less than 5 kilometers from the finish.

    In the reduced peloton around the yellow jersey behind him, Chris Froome (Team Sky) then attacks, accompanied by his team mate Richie Porte. The Italian rider however manages to stay ahead until the finish line where he arrives completely exhausted in the fog. De Marchi explained at the press conference after the finish that this victory was the fruit of his numerous attacks since the start of his professional career and that he realised his dream with this win. He also said he was happy to realise his dream here in the Dauphiné.

    General classification

    In the top 5 of the final general classification there are still some changes and most notably for Michael Rogers (Team Saxo-Tinkoff) who loses his podium place and falls back to the 6th place.

    1/ Chris Froome (Team Sky) - 29h28'46"

    5/ Daniel Navarro (Cofidis solutions crédits) - +2'20"

    Points classification

    In the points classification, Gianni Meersman (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) goes home with his green jersey since Chris Froome (Team Sky) didn't win this last stage:

    1/ Gianni Meersman (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) - 49 points
    2/ Chris Froome (Team Sky) - 47 points
    3/ Richie Porte (Team Sky) - 32 points
    4/ Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky) - 26 points
    5/ Jakob Fuglsang (Team Saxo-Tinkoff) - 23 points

    King of the Mountains classification

    In the King of the Mountains classification, Thomas Damuseau (Team Argos-Shimano) also keeps his precious jersey. Not much changes in this final classification, even though Chris Froome (Team Sky) makes his entrance in the top 5:

    1/ Thomas Damuseau (Team Argos-Shimano) - 109 points
    2/ Kevin Seeldrayers (Astana) - 77 points

    5/ Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) - 35 points

    Young riders classsification

    In the young riders classification, the revelation of this Critérium du Dauphiné, Rohan Dennis (Garmin-Sharp), goes home with the white jersey of best young rider. In this final classification we no longer find Michal Kwiatkowski (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) in the top 5 since he abandoned the race in this last stage (like 32 other riders) and Angel Madrazo (Movistar Team) has lost too much time in this stage to still figure in the top 5.

    1/ Rohan Dennis (Garmin-Sharp) - 29h32'10"
    2/ Alexandre Geniez (FDJ) - +3'53"
    3/ Warren Barguil (Team Argos-Shimano) - +8'48"

    5/ Egor Silin (Astana) - +11'52"

  1. Un petit bilan de ce Dauphiné :

    Sacré numéro de David Veuilleux à Champéry. L'étape d'Oyonnax m'a laissé sur ma fin, et Tarare s'est déroulée comme prévue.

    Le CLM, même raccourci par rapport aux années précédentes a de nouveau figé le classement général. C'est drole de coir que le Dauphiné se présente comme la course des grimpeurs et qu'au final, 80% du temps, c'est le CLM qui fait tout. Je me demande si le Dauphiné ne devrait pas se contenter d'un CLM de 15km en ouverture et ne faire que des étapes en ligne par la suite. Cela aurait peut être le désavantage d'envoyer les leaders du Tour sur le Tour de Suisse, pour avoir un CLM plus long en vue du Tour, mais cela aurait le mérite de moins bloquer la course.

    Agréablement surpris par Valmeinier, qui a fait plus de dégâts que je ne le pensais, pourtant je continue de penser que sur le Tour, il faudrait durcir l'approche sous peine de voir 30 coureurs ensembles au sommet. Mais je reconnais tout de même que la montée m'a paru plus difficile que la 1ère fois que je l'ai montée. Seuls les 4 derniers kms sont faciles.

    Grenoble, encore plus surpris, finalement c'est après les grand prix de la montagne que la course s'est jouée.

    Superdévoluy : Je ne sais pas pourquoi mais je m'était mis en tête que le col du Noyer était plus difficile que cela, finalement, après un 1er coup de cul, la montée se fait avec une succession de faux plat et de parties plus difficiles jusqu'à la sortie du Noyer. Ensuite, la route est très régulière, entre 7.5 et 8.5% jusqu'au sommet, excepté l'avant dernier km terrible à 11.5%. La montée finale est quand même un tue la course.

    Autre chose concernant le col du Noyer, la route est très étroite, quand on voit que le Tour et le Dauphiné l'on emprunté, la largeur n'est pas un problème pour emprunté le col de Plan Bois que j'ai refait aujourd'hui, et qui est bien plus large que le Noyer. Il suffirais de refaire en partie le 2ème km de la descente, et ce col serait vraiment parfait.

    Les conditions dantesques de la dernière étape ont entraîné une course plus difficiles que si cela s'était passé au sec, mais le spectacle fut tout de même assez pauvre.

    D'accord sauf pour Valmeinier ! C'est Valmorel ;) Peut-être que tu va nous proposé cette station dans ton prochain Tour pour faire un tel lapsus :) J'en ferais bien le paris, ou seulement le fait que tu l'as repéré pour un parcours ;)

    Le Noyer que je croyais plutôt régulier est ''vachement'' irrégulier. Un peu moins sur la fin. Très beaux tournants sur la fin qui révèle bien la pente que tu indiques.

    Plan Bois : j'attend vraiment du pouvoir m'y mesurer cette été.
    Ce serait l'occasion de se rencontrer un jour (comme j'avais déjà du t'en parler) vu que je vais au Grand-Bornand ;)

    *Thomas : (si tu vois ce message) j'ai posté un Tour de France mais je ne sais pas si tu l'as validé ou non ? Dois-je le reposter ?

  3. J'ai toujours confondu les 2 stations, en plus cet après midi je regardais le parcours du Tour des Pays de Savoie qui arrivent, eux, à Valmeinier.

    Partant pour faire la montée de Plan Bois cet été, il faudra juste voir si on trouve une date.

    | Olivier73 | tuesday 11 June 2013 at 23:25:30

  4. Bah j'y vais début août. La date sera donc dur à prévoir surtout que je n'aurais pas internet (ou les moyens d'écrire sur le site) pour en parler. Du coup on peut toujours se donner une date fixe. On en reparlera courant juillet du coup.
    Après il faut que j'en aussi parle à mon père car à 17 ans je doute que je puisse partir seul en montagne encore (même si avec mes parcours je connais mieux les routes que lui ;).
    On verra mais ça serait sympa malgré que je sois de la région parisienne et n'est pas le temps de faire beaucoup de vélo. Mais après le Bac : entrainement ;)
