Matteo Jorgenson – ‘no regrets’ at Critérium du Dauphiné after nearly toppling leader Roglič at last moment

    So near but so far – but no regrets, either way. At the last possible moment, Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease A Bike) came within a whisker of toppling Critérium du Dauphine leader Primož Roglič (Bora-Hansgrohe), attacking him on the final climb of the race, the Plateau des Glieres, and with every turn of the pedalstrokes, closing in on the Slovenian star overall.

    In a heartstopping finale, Jorgenson claimed second on the stage behind Carlos Rodríguez (Ineos Grenadiers), and the resulting time gap on Roglič meant Jorgenson’s courageous last-ditch attack all but proved enough to go from second to first as well.
