Froome holds yellow as Rogers moves up to third
Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel-Euskadi) won stage 7 of the Critérium du Dauphiné after he out-sprinted Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) atop the third category climb of Superdévoluy.
The pair had escaped near the summit of the preceding Col du Noyer and held off an elite chasing group that included overall leader Chris Froome (Sky) and Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) on the short descent and sharp final climb to fight out the stage honours.
Richie Porte (Sky) clipped off the front of the yellow jersey group in the final kilometre to finish in third place, 15 seconds down, just ahead of Daniel Moreno (Katusha).
Michael Rogers (Saxo-Tinkoff) moves up to third place overall after Rohan Dennis (Garmin-Sharp) was dropped on the Col du Noyer. Rogers’ teammate Alberto Contador took up the pace-making in the yellow jersey group near the summit of the climb, and although he was unable to put Froome in difficulty, he did whittle the group down to just ten riders.
With one stage remaining, Froome holds a 51-second lead over Richie Porte, while Rogers lies in third place, 1:37 down.
