Briton Thomas takes Dauphine lead as Ireland's Martin wins stage

Team Sky also won the team event - finishing seven minutes and 18 seconds ahead of Team Emirates.

"It's incredible, it hasn't sunk in yet", Thomas said of the victory.

"I knew I had about one minute 20 seconds to lose on Yatesy so at 200 (metres) to go, when they started sprinting for the win, I was relieved", Thomas was quoted as saying by the BBC.

Thomas added to ITV: "I always felt in control, I always felt pretty good, but I didn't want to get too carried away (on the final climb)".

"Without the boys here I would not have won the Dauphine". The guys rode really well for me.

The race is a good indicator of form heading into the Tour de France, which takes place from 7-29 July.

Yates said: "The Tour de France has been my main goal for the whole season".
