SONY DSCWhen I left the Critérium du Dauphiné on Friday with the days stage to complete little did I know that the reign at the top of Chris Froome, of Team Sky, was soon to end. Team Sky seemed to be heading for a 4th straight win on the 2nd largest race in France after Froom took the yellow jersey on the opening stage, an indiviual time trial.
