Team Sky's overall time at the end of the stage between Pont-de-Vaux and Louhans-Chateaurenaud was 27 hours, 12 minutes and nine seconds.

"It's probably one of Team Sky's best time trials ever", he said.

Team Sky proved a cut above their rivals from the outset and were 14 seconds clear of then-leader BMC Racing at the first intermediate time check.

Kwiatkowski, Sky's Polish rider who won Sunday's opening time trial prologue, came off his bike after lashing rain left slick patches in the final two kilometres of the 181km stage between Montbrison and Belleville, but managed to finish.

Team Sky turned in a flawless performance Wednesday to win the Critérium du Dauphiné's stage 3 team time trial and put Michal Kwiatkowski back into the GC lead. "It's always a wonderful feeling to win together with the team, we had a flawless stage". Lotto Soudal posted the third fastest time, 52 seconds behind Sky. But we'll defend the jersey.

He said he had been in contact with the widow after Trump's comments and they chose to issue a statement on behalf of the family. Earlier this week, Mr Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by celebrity Kim Kardashian West.

Michal Kwiatkowski leads the race, with Gianni Moscon and Jonathan Castroviejo second and third respectively.

"I thought I was on a good wheel, but we hesitated and the other guys got the jump on us".

"I'm so happy that I got no major issues after the crash yesterday. We rode a flawless stage, technically and tactically, on the entire course".

It was Ackermann's second professional victory after he claimed a stage win at the Tour of Romandie earlier this season.
