Contador passes Dauphine time trial test with solid performance

Alberto Contador (Trek Segafredo) put in a respectable ride on stage 4 of the Criterium du Dauphine and remains a GC threat before the mountains stages. The Spaniard finished seventh over the 23.5 kilometre, conceding 35 seconds to stage winner Richie Porte but putting two seconds into Chris Froome. The result was enough to move Contador up to fifth overall, 1:02 down on race leader Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) with the mountains on the horizon.
