Ireland's Sam Bennett sprinted to a commanding victory on stage three of the Criterium du Dauphine on Tuesday.

Bora-Hansgrohe's Bennett took the 177km stage from Le Puy-en-Velay to Riom after some brilliant teamwork allowed him to break clear in the final 200m.

Team Jumbo-Visma's Wout Van Aert came second in the sprint, with Italian Davide Ballerini close behind him in third.

Belgian Dylan Teuns retained the yellow jersey and his three-second lead over Guillaume Martin in the general classification.

British pair Chris Froome and Adam Yates both remain in the top 10, 24 seconds behind Teuns.

Vos prevails in Kent

Marianne Vos has won the second stage of the OVO Energy Women's Tour at the Kent Cyclopark on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old from Holland, who won the Tour de Yorkshire last month, prevailed in a group sprint which saw Lizzie Deignan finish second.

Mitchelton-SCOTT's Sarah Roy was third, ahead of Canyon//SRAM's Elena Cecchini and Valcar Cylance's Maria Giulia Confalonieri.

Vos, who races for team CCC Liv, outsprinted her rivals to prevail by two metres and provisionally win the race leader's green jersey.

TrekSegafredo put the hammer down at the front in a bid to secure victory for their rider Deignan, but the powerful Vos edged her in a thrilling finish.
