Dauphiné: Contador 9th in penultimate stage

The second successive day in the mountains at the Critérium du Dauphiné saw a slightly stronger Alberto Contador, a few cracks in other GC contenders' armor, and race leader Richie Porte (BMC) continuing to show no hint of weakness. While the breakaway fought out the win in the 167.5-kilometer penultimate stage seven - Peter Kennaugh (Sky) claimed the honor - the GC fight waited until the final kilometers of the last climb, a different, shorter route up Alpe d'Huez.

Dauphiné: Contador satisfied with first mountain test

Stage six at the Critérium du Dauphiné was a small taste of what stage nine will bring at the Tour de France in a month's time, finishing with the same steep Mont du Chat climb and descent. While Friday's race had little climbing ahead of the 8.7-kilometer uphill, the Tour will add three significant climbs before the Mont du Chat is tackled, making a different and harder race.
