Teuns edges Martin in thrilling sprint finish on stage 2 of Dauphine
Dylan Teuns edged out Guillaume Martin in a thrilling one-on-one sprint battle to win stage 2 of the Criterium du Dauphine.
Victory on the 180km Mauriac to Craponne-sur-Arzon route also puts Teuns three seconds ahead of Martin in the general classification.
However, a host of GC contenders remain in the mix after finishing 13 seconds behind Teuns and Martin.
Teuns and Martin broke away from the rest of the front group with around 20km to go, and the pair were engaged in a thrilling race for the finish line.
Martin put the burners on with 200m to go to overtake Teuns, but the Belgian recovered in time to take it on the line.
It was also Teuns first stage victory since 2017.
