Thomas takes Dauphine lead as Martin wins stage

Briton Thomas takes Dauphine lead as Ireland's Martin wins stage

Thomas sealed overall victory in the prestigious race for the first time - becoming the fifth British victor in its history - after successfully defending his overall lead as second-placed compatriot Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) won the final stage on St Gervais Mont Blanc.

Thomas held off Briton Adam Yates, victor of the concluding seventh stage, with France's Romain Bardet taking third in the overall standings.

Thomas then launched a spectacular bid to catch Martin and only French hope Romain Bardet was able to follow. It's a massive race and it's an incredible feeling.

The race is a good indicator of form heading into the Tour de France, which takes place from 7-29 July.

"Throughout the race I was never thinking about the end result, it was always about the next day or the next climb".
