Bradley Wiggins has recorded an impressive second consecutive victory in the Critérium du Dauphiné.
The Englishman triumphed over a field that included reigning Tour de France champion, Cadel Evans (BMC Racing), and world time trial champion, Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-QuickStep).
Britain’s Team Sky rode impressively in support of their leader.
Their dominance is reflected in the general classification, with Michael Rogers second, Chris Froome fourth, and Richie Porte ninth. Edvald Boasson Hagen won stage three, and Wiggins won stage four.
Wiggins will now focus on the Tour de France. In this form, he will surely start among the favourites.
Here are the key moments of the final stage of the Critérium, captured through the lens of WorldTour photographer, Stefano Sirotti.
