Simon Spilak wins as Alberto Contador turns up the heat

Stages one and two belonged to Chris Froome, but his rivals are fighting back at the Criterium du Dauphine.

As Simon Spilak soloed to Katusha’s second consecutive victoryafter Yuri Trofimov’s stage four success – further back Alberto Contador was turning up the heat on Froome and co.

El Pistolero‘s attack on the penultimate descent was a display of power and a reminder this race is certainly not over yet.

With 12 seconds separating Froome and Contador and three stages remaining, the fight for pre-Tour supremacy is going to the wire.
