He holds his first victory among the professionals. At 29, the Spaniard of Movistar Carlos Verona offered himself a great career first. He won the seventh stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné alone on Saturday June 11, resisting the rocket return of Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma), second in the stage and new boss in the general classification. The yellow jersey Wout van Aert tried to hang on but yielded in the Col de la Croix de Fer.

He did the Spaniard!  He offers himself his first victory among the pros, and Primoz Roglic recovers the yellow jersey by finishing second in this stage ahead of his teammate Jonas Vingegaard!

The Slovenian hit hard and made an impression. He was perfectly propelled by a sparkling Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma), who even came third on the finish line in Vaujany (Isère). The two members of the Dutch formation therefore occupy, before the last stage, the first two places in the general classification before the arrival at the Plateau de Solaison on Sunday. David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), who made his team work, lost 27 seconds to Roglic but climbed to sixth place overall, sixteen seconds from the podium and Ben O’Connor (AG2R Citroën), third.
