The Ukrainian climber impressed again on the Col de Joux-Plane 24 hours after dominating the climb to La Plagne. This time, he spent the whole day in the breakawayalso claiming the polka-dot jersey, and dropped all his companions with 27.5km to go. In the GC battle, Miguel Angel Lopez (Movistar) and Jack Haig (Bahrain Victoriousattacked Richie Porte on the final climb of the day, but they couldn’t shake up the collective strength from Ineos Grenadiers.

The downhill was much more complicatedwith Alexey Lutsenko and Ion Izagirre (Astana-Premier Tech) accelerating and Geraint Thomas hitting the deck. But Porte managed to keep things under control to become the second Australian winner of the Dauphiné, after Phil Anderson did so in 1985. Porte was born that same year… He is now the oldest winner in the history of the race.
