Criterium du Dauphine leader Primoz Roglic has withdrawn from the race before the final stage because of injuries sustained in a crash on Saturday.

The Jumbo-Visma rider was left “in a lot of pain” after the crash on stage four but managed to finish in 10th.

The 30-year-old Slovene led by 14 seconds after Saturday’s stage but Groupama-FDJ’s Thibaut Pinot will now head the general classification.

The 153.5km final stage is under way.

The Dauphine is the final warm-up race for many riders before the Tour de France, which begins on 29 August.
