The hero of the opening stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné, Rune Herregodts, offered himself a distinctive jersey after his breakaway of 150 kilometer thanks to his third place. This Monday, the 24 year old Belgian riders lined up for the start of the second stage in Brassac-les-Mines with the white jersey of the young rider's classification on his shoulders.
Well protected all day, he reached the finish line in La Chaise-Dieu 167 kilometer later in the peloton, in the same time as the winner Julian Alaphilippe who was the fastest in the sprint.
At the end of the stage, Herregodts is fourth in the general classification, six seconds behind yellow jersey Christophe Laporte. He keeps his white jersey and will wear it in the third stage of a little less than 200 kilometer, which suits the fast riders.
